Hi everybody, I am the proud owner of a newly bought Ipad 2. I plan to sail across the Atlantic ocean, and the Ipad will be an important tool during that voyage. I have a laptop that runs my navigational software, but obviously the conditions in the cockpit are not really laptop-friendly. The plan is to use the Ipad as an external monitor to show me the software the laptop is running. I found a nifty app that does just that, splashtop. However, splashtop uses wifi to get the signal across. All good and well in the marina, but out on the ocean there is no wifi signal... So the laptop has to create an ad-hoc wifi network for the Ipad to tap into. That's where I'm having trouble. Some extra details on the laptop and what I've tried so far: Laptop is a Lenovo T61 with windows 7 ultimate installed. I have created a ad-hoc wifi network on the laptop no problem. I have used all 3 sorts of security (none, WPA2 and WEP) on various attempts. The creation of the network is no issue at all. The Ipad just refuses to connect to the actual network. Any clues?
