My dictionary (OEDE) does not hyphenate ad hoc. Does yours?--Adoniscik (talk) 23:35, 27 January 2008 (UTC)

Redirect from [Ad hoc network][edit]

To quote Peer-to-peer: "Peer-to-peer networks are typically formed dynamically by ad hoc additions of nodes. In an 'ad hoc' network, the removal of nodes has no significant impact on the network. The distributed architecture of an application in a peer-to-peer system provides enhanced scalability and service robustness."

The Peer-to-peer article is quite clearly talking about ACTUAL ad-hoc networks, while Ad hoc network falsely leads to wireless ad hoc networks

If noone shouts STOP - I will change the redirect (again).

Ad hoc wireless network and Wireless ad hoc network[edit]

What is the difference between the two topics Ad hoc wireless network and Wireless ad hoc network? In my opinion it's just the wording. (talk) 14:24, 27 May 2010 (UTC)

I think, these should be merged (I do not know which title to use, though). -Yyy (talk) 12:57, 12 March 2011 (UTC)
Indeed it is a good idea for these two topics to be merged, to reduce confusion. I suggest leaving “Wireless ad hoc network” and reducing “Ad hoc wireless network” to a reference to the other topic only. --Marius 09:34, 20 March 2011 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by MariusG (talkcontribs)
In regard to the merge and "Redirect from Ad hoc network" comments above, I think a merge of both articles to just 'Ad hoc network' without the 'wireless' bit would be consistent with other articles. CJ Drop me a line!Contribs 14:47, 11 September 2011 (UTC)


802.11 series of wireless computer network standards specifies ad-hoc mode, where nodes connect to each other, directly. (This mode of operation is unpopular because of many reasons) Article Wireless LAN refers here. This article needs at least a paragraph about ad-hoc mode in 802.11 networks. -Yyy (talk) 12:57, 12 March 2011 (UTC)

Info related to Windows 7[edit]

Was wondering about the technical info behind how Windows 7 manages the sessions in an ad hoc connection. Suppose it's more a networking question, but specific sections on creation of these networks on platforms could be useful. Shaded0 (talk) 19:30, 8 July 2012 (UTC)
