    Ad Hoc (Or something similar) OFFLINE


    Hi there folks. I'm sure you've heard the question about creating/joining ad-hoc networks before. I have. From the tutorials I've seen, it only explains how to create a network when you are already connected to a wireless network from a router. If that's the case you might as well use that network. What I'd love to know, is how to create one when you are not connected to any other networks, as in completely offline. The reason I'm asking this is because my friends and I use it for various purposes in school. However, I now have Windows 10 along with someone else. The rest run Windows 7, so they obviously have no issue. And since there are no wifi networks for us to connect to, we can't run a hotspot one. If anyone knows how to do this, whether it be with Windows or a 3rd party program, I'd appreciate it.

    What nutjob decided removing ad hoc support would be a good idea anyway?
