Hi All,

Ned your help !!!

I wanted to connect my nokia N8 to internet.
But my service provider charges a lot.
So i thought to connect my mobile to internet through my laptop.

I googled and found that i can use wireless ad-hoc network option and connect my nokia (a WLAN) to internet.

My issue: In network and sharing -> connect to network option,
I dont have an option called "wireless ad-hoc connection"..

Can any one of you plz help.Hope i am clear about what i want.

I use windows vista and use dell studio laptop.

If you know any other way to connect a moble phone(Nokia N8) to internet via a laptop plz do let me know.

Thank You,

Thank you "Area51reopened"
I figured it out.

Got problem with my WiFi driver.
I re installed it and now i coulod see the option ad-hoc wireless networks.

Now i have another issue.
I could connect my mobile only with a unsequred network.
If i use a WPA2 connecton, my mobile detets the WLAN but if i try connecting it says "General : format not supported."

Can anyone of you please help.
