    Peristent ad hoc wireless network?


    Hello,

    Long story, but the ability to do a persistent ad hoc network on windows 8 is playing a big role in a purchase decision of mine...

    Has anyone had luck setting up a persistent ad hoc wireless network with the release version of windows 8?

    I'm not sure if you mean for just sharing files of for sharing the wireless connection.

    Connectify Pro has an automatic start up feature but it costs a few bucks.
