    Anyone get the Pre to connect to a Windows (Vista or 7) Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) PC or Laptop?

    I have tried a couple of times and the Pre won't even pick up that Windows ICS is broadcasting a Wifi SSID. I used another laptop to connect to the connection so I know it is broadcasting ok.

    I'm thinking that it has to do with the Pre not having a windows type username and password authentication.

    Laptop has wifi and wired connection:
    Turn off windows firewall
    Network Connection and Sharing Center
    Manage Wireless Networks
    Create ad-hoc network
    put in a SSID
    set to open
    check save this network
    Turn on Connection Sharing

    Another PC can immediately see the new network
    Pre cannot

    Less to do with Windows, and more to do with ad-hoc networking, I'd wager.
    Does anyone know that the Pre even supports ad-hoc?

    Is there a way to enable the support?
