Currently Being ModeratedSep 23, 2010 8:09 PM (in response to pjbipod)I have iPhone 4 running IOS 4.1 and ThinkPad running Vista and am experiencing a similar problem. I am able to connect to the ad-hoc network (using WEP encription as WPA2 didn't work at all) however I cannot get internet access through this network connection. My wife has an iPhone 3GS running IOS 4.0.2 and she has no problems at all connecting to the ad-hoc network and getting a connection to the internet.
I also find that my phone does not remember the pass code to connect to the network and I need to enter it each time I try to connect. The option to "Auto-Join" the network always slides back to "OFF" when I exit from the network setup page. Again my wifes phone does not have this same problem.
Looks to me like it is either an IOS 4.1 issue or iPod/iPhone 4 hardware problem.

Currently Being ModeratedJan 13, 2011 8:08 PM (in response to CrustyNoodle)I have the exact same problems with "Auto-join" sliding back to the off position, but my password is remembered.
This is on a 3rd gen Touch running iOS 4.2.1, and Vista on a Acer Travelmate.
The lack of Auto-Join means the connection is dropped whenever the iPod is turned off/sleeps.iOS 4.2.1 / iPod Touch 3Gen, Windows Vista

Currently Being ModeratedApr 8, 2011 4:10 PM (in response to pjbipod)I have an 4th Generation iTouch 32 GB running iOS 4.3 and I was finally able to connect my iTouch to my Windows 7 Pro x64 laptop to use the internet. You need to create an Ad Hoc connection on the computer. The iTouch would only connect to the Ad Hoc connection if the network had a WEP password. The iTouch was not able to connect when the Ad Hoc connection was using a WPA connection. Make sure that the device that is receiving the internet connection is enabled for file sharing and you should be all set.Windows 7
