Ad-Hoc Network (Windows)

Create the network

Instructions for creating an ad-hoc network vary between Windows XP, 7 and 8. We highly recommend using Connectify Hotspot software to create and manage ad-hoc networks. The free version worked great last time we checked.

Connect to the network

Once you've created the ad-hoc network on your Windows machine, connect to this network with your tablet:

  • iOS: Go to Settings / Wi-Fi and select the ad-hoc network.
  • Android: Go to Settings / Wi-Fi and select the ad-hoc network.

Note: Starting with iOS 6, it seems that the AirPort symbol no longer appears when the iPad is connected to an ad-hoc network, even if the connection is properly established. You can check if the iPad is connected:

  • Go to Settings / Wi-Fi
  • Tap on the blue arrow for the ad-hoc you're connected to.
  • If you see an IP, this means your iPad is connected. Bear in mind that it can take up to a full minute or two for the IP to be assigned.

Once you are connected, you can now send/receive OSC messages or use the Lemur Daemon to send/receive MIDI. Read Windows MIDI Connection to learn how to setup the Lemur Daemon.
