What I am trying to do is to connect an iPad to a Samsung Galaxy Tab via Wireless LAN. What I don't need is an internet connection.

I also only have an Samsung Galaxy Tab Wifi. I can access the Hotspot Options via a shortcut, but it tells me that I need a SIM to do that.

Is there any way to create a local WLAN network broadcast by the Tab?

Seems like nobody has any ideas? – boIn Sep 14 '11 at 15:22

The app ZT-180 Adhoc Switcher works with a rooted P1010 tab according to this thread on xda-developers, and as far as I know, iPad can create ad-hoc connections. Haven't tested this so use at your own risk.
