Hello. I'm having difficulties with wifi (why would I post something if I didn't? )
I just got a gift and it's a toy (a rabbit ) which need a wireless connection. For those who want to know, the address is www.nabaztag.com
I bought a wireless-G PCI adapter which I have plugged in the computer.

My question is: do I need a router or access point (is it the same thing? )

Because when I do the configuration of the toy, I can pick up the signal from the rabbit and connect to it with the computer. However, the rabbit can't connect to my network because my computer keeps thinking it has to look for a wireless network. I have heard of ad-hoc network where you don't need an access point. (That was the mode the rabbit used for his network). How do I create one? Please help

find the settings for your card and look for infrastructure or access point mode, and you should also find an option to change that to ad-hoc.

If your interesting looking little creature can use ad-hoc mode, then you will not require a router/access point.

NZ users wishing to buy one of these could go here.

Interesting device. I would actually like something modern (and not toy-ish) to sit in the lounge and do the same things... (other than my pocket pc)

Well, I created a profile with ad-hoc connection, and put ad-hoc whereever I could, but still not working. When I try to connect to that profile, it says "connection is failed on currently activated profile". I have tryed configurating with windows XP as well as with the wireless pci software. I must be doing somehing wrong. I can connect to a network, but I can't create one on my computer :(
