Thanks for your reply.
By using this command the network that I set was not actually an ad hoc,
because the PCs can only ping the host with the IP address of 192.168.173.1.
The other PCs cannot ping each other. It seems the host act like an access point
rather than a member in an ad hoc network. Can you please help me on this issue?
Many thanks in advance.

thank you, it's really helpful. :)
There is still a problem in a network connected to the hostednetwork.
They can't connect to each other as an ad hoc is supposed to be.
Each machine can ping the host but not each other.

It looks like the Wi-Man tool uses the hostednetwork feature, which is infrastructure mode, not ad-hoc. Is there any solution for creating a proper ad-hoc network in Windows 8? There are also serious problems in connecting to an ad-hoc network and enabling tcp-ip. It looks like MS crippled ad-hoc networks in Win 8. What on earth for? They worked perfectly well in Windows 7.Tuesday, January 01, 2013 4:47 PM
