What simply is an ad hoc network?
We can say an Ad hoc/wireless(hotspot) network connection is a way to communicate with two computer with out having a router and wires .
Through this you can share files,images,videos, and internet. I am going to explain you how to make ad hoc network in windows 8& 7. Trust me its very easy its not a rocket science. Just follow the steps i am going to explain.

But in windows 8&7 you have to use a third party software for making the ad hoc network which is VirtualRouterPlus, also you need to make sure that your laptop or pc is connect with a wired internet cable. Now you are good to go to create your ad hoc network.
