I found a link which provided enough of an explanation. I would chase after the Netx stuff if I had a netX. When I saw no traffic in my original testing, I returned the netX.
What I got from the link was that I could set up a windows PC to have both an ad hoc connection and a wired ethernet connection under Windows XP. I would need to Reverse emgineer the protocol but that is doable, If I had the netx and the wireless packet sniffer. Anyone want to loan me a netX? I don't feel like shelling out $300. I would buy the wireless packet snifter. Too bad the browser on the ipronto is so lame.[Link: microsoft.com]
