Evo, prekopiran tekst iz knjige koja se bavi Wireless networkingom:
An ad hoc wireless LAN does not utilize access points. Instead, each individual user device communicates directly with another user device. The advantage of this configuration is that users can spontaneously form a wireless LAN quickly. Ad hoc networks are also commonly referred to as peer-to-peer networks.
For example, an ad hoc wireless LAN makes it easy for someone to transfer a large file to an associate in a conference room where an infrastructure wireless LAN is not available. Each user simply configures his radio NIC to operate in ad hoc mode, and connections are made automatically. In some cases, the users need to ensure that their IP addresses are set within the same subnet.
Ad hoc mode is also beneficial for supporting emergency services where operations might take place in areas where a wired distribution system for interconnecting access points is not practical. A disaster relief group, for example, can quickly set up network connections among staff working in areas afflicted by hurricanes, floods, and terrorist attacks.
