What is wireless ad-hoc network?
A wireless ad-hoc or computer-to-computer network is a decentralized LAN type of wireless network that is built right after the devices connected. The reason we call it ad-hoc is because it does not rely on the existing wired networks or access points managed wireless networks. Instead of relying on a base station, router, to coordinate the flow of messages to each node in the network, the individual network nodes forward packets to and from each other. The determination of which nodes forward data is made dynamically based on the network connectivity. In other words, in the Windows operating system, ad-hoc is a communication mode or setting that allows computers to directly communicate with each other without a router. In addition to the classic routing, ad hoc networks can use flooding for forwarding the data.
How to set up wireless ad-hoc network?
