    Default Internet Connection Sharing

    I'm trying to get ICS up on my computer to use my iPhone on the net. However, it never seems to hold up for more than 2 minutes or so at most. I've tried both OSX and windows, encrypted and unencrypted on both, and although I've managed to get connections under all connections, they always drop out very fast.

    There's no problem I know of with my iPhone or computer - they both work happily for long periods connecting to APs, so does anyone know what I can possibly do about this problem? It's making testing pretty hard! :p

    Haven't used it on an XP box but I have used it extensively on my Vista laptop. Was on a business trip at a hotel with wired, but not wireless, Net access. Just setup an ad-hoc network on the laptop to use with my iPhone, for the days I was there.

    Aside from Vista's crappy habit of making ad-hoc networks go bye-bye after the last client disconnects, I was able to use it for hours at a time without getting disconnected, or any other issue. I just had to set up the ad-hoc network again each day.

    Oh yea, could not get WPA to work, but WEP functions. As usual with ICS, the host PC acts as DHCP and router. And as expected, my iPhone received a 192.168.0.x address, with 192.168.0.1 for DNS/gateway IP.

    Over the years, i have found that IBSS (or ad-hoc mode), has been implemented several dozen ways depending on the chipset/drivers in question.

    The result is vendor interop is extremely buggy and finicky.

    It is likely that one device changed the BSSID while the other one remained the same, splitting the IBSS network into two, and thus creating an island of two networks. Its the most common situation...but it could always be something else.
