Ad-Hoc connectivity enabling *solved...sorta*
Any ideas about enabling the wifi to scan and connect to Ad-Hoc networks?
I have a samsung indulge 4g from metropcs that I can turn into a wireless hotspot but only in ad-hoc broadcasting style. I tried several methods to transmit with it in a normal wifi fashion but they resulted in DHCP errors.
I'll do some experiments with the normal methods for this and report my findings here...but some of them break your wifi requiring a complete reset so if someone can save me the trouble..that would be nice... or if I figure it out..ill post it here and save someone else the trouble potentially.
Updated/modded wpa_supplicant files found online have just made the wifi not work

This application actually works... it cannot be found in the marketplace through the device so download it from here...drop it to an SD card and install it that way..
Just a note... the default Ad-Hoc network is AndroidTether you will not be able to connect to any other named network unless you go to settings and enter the specific name.
Another note about using ZT 180
To switch between modes... in ZT 180 select "DISABLE WIFI" before you switch.
If you shutdown the device with Ad-Hoc enabled you must enter ZT 180 disable wifi...then switch to normal (infrastructure) mode... then re enable wifi in ZT 180 but then go into normal settings and toggle the wifi (turn off/on again... it may say ERROR but just toggle it and it will go back to normal)
As a practice..always disable wifi in ZT-180 and switch back to infrastructure mode...then renable and toggle to get your wifi back to normal before you shutdown. (doesnt make a huge difference but just good practice...sort of like cleaning up your mess when youre done playing
If anyone finds a better Ad-Hoc solution that works let me know
