I'have created a ad-hoc hotspot with a raspberry pi 2 and original raspberry pi wifi dongle as described at the link


I can connect to Pi's adhoc connection with my macbook without a problem but I cannot connect with my windows computers (I tried 3 different computers) and not connected with another raspberry pi.

what is the problem ? need help

I use raspbian jessie release 8.0 , and Official Raspberry Pi WiFi Dongle

on Windows , ipconfig command not returns valuable details because I don't even connect the ad-hoc network.

enter image description here

  • what does your ipconfig on your windows tell you? also try changing your DHCP through this Link I use Linux on my Laptop which is less of a hassle maybe by windows you might need Admin rights – Shan-Desai Jul 8 '16 at 20:38
  • ipconfig tells nothing , because I can't even connect to network. I change DHCP to obtain automatically and manually both, but it did not work again. – Memik Jul 8 '16 at 20:59
  • Can you edit your question into an elaborate step wise question on what have you actually done. I know it takes time but this might help make things more clear. Have you also Configured the Ad-Hoc on Windows ? I mean something similar to This Post – Shan-Desai Jul 8 '16 at 21:02
