Understanding What Ad Hoc networks are

When we say ad hoc networking, it means letting several computers communicate with each other without using a router. The communication happen using LAN or Local Area Networking. It is when you are using a cross-over cable to transfer files from your computer to your friend’s device.

Ad hoc networking can actually provide basic internet sharing temporarily. To start an ad hoc networking, the user will have to create a network profile to be able to host the networking. After the computers are connected to the ad hoc network, the Operating System will try to get the IP address from the DHCP server.

If they found out that there is no DHCP server, the devices will automatically assign themselves the automatic IP address they need along with the subnet. Once they have assigned the required IP address and subnet then they can start communicating with each other to share files.

A Wireless Access Point [WAP] or simply Access Point [AP] is a specifically configured connection in a Wireless Local Area Network [WLAN]. It works as the main sender and receiver of WLAN radio signals.

The Access Points [APs] used in small business networks as well as in home are normally small, dedicated hardware devices presenting an integrated network adapter, a radio transmitter, and an antenna.

Access points support standard WiFi wireless communication. It can also support “infrastructure” mode even if especially small WLANs work without access points and this is what they call the peer-to-peer mode, or ad hoc.

This mode links Wireless Local Area Networks with a wired Ethernet LAN and this also balances the network so it can support additional clients.
