I'm looking for a way to connect my Galaxy Nexus (Android 4.0.x) to my laptop via adhoc wifi. (The laptop will act as my wireless NAS.)
The WiFi Ad Hoc enabler for Android does not work on the Galaxy Nexus. (The statistics at at that link show 0 successes and 13 failures for GNex owners who tried it. However, it works for many other devices.)
I also see this advice: You need a modified wpa_supplicant file in /system/bin.
What modifications are needed to the wpa_supplicant file in /system/bin?
I see a couple proposed solutions for other devices, but nothing for the Galaxy Nexus.
However, I see this response: "patching the wpa_suplicant isn't generic and frankly I'd call that method useless."
What is the best solution? Can anyone shed more light on the problem here?
