    what is the other device which is making the ad-hoc network?
    can any other devices (mobile and not desktop) access your ad-hoc network without issue?
    Is it definatly ad-hoc and not infastructure?

    ad-hoc networks via any linux based device/system tends to be shakey at best or non functional without some serious command line abuse or using some well made software which basically does all that for you.

    On a plus note there are many linux/ad-hoc posts on the interwebs which explain how-to, and pretty much all of them should work in a similar way, anything on linux or android or webOS should be pretty similar.

    best solutions tend to be via another webOS device and use freetether or use a winblows/linux desktop/laptop device to setup hotspot software which uses infrastructure as opposed to ad-hoc given that many mobile devices dispise connecting to ad-hoc's (android and others tend to behave the same ways).

    more info on your setup would be handy.

    An ad hoc network is somewhat more complicated to set up than a regular infrastructure network. I assume you are creating an ad hoc network because you want the machines on that network to communicate with each other (peer-to-peer.) You need to ensure that each wireless adapter is set up in ad hoc mode and also that all the machines in the network use the same SSID and channel number. You would also need to enter some IP settings on each of them indicating which of the machines will act as a gateway to the Internet.

    If all you want is just to have several machines with Internet access, use Infrastructure mode instead. That is much easier to set up.
