If your Mac is not on a network, but you’d still like to connect to an iPad, you can create what’s called an Ad Hoc Network (aka: computer-to-computer network). This type of direct network actually provides the optimum wireless performance. Follow the instructions below to create an ad hoc network on your Mac, then connect to the new network with your iPad:
Creating a Computer-to-Computer Network
- Choose “Create Network” from the Wi-Fi status icon in the menu bar and Press OK.
- If the icon isn’t in the menu bar, choose Apple > System Preferences, and then click Network. Click Wi-Fi and select the “Show Wi-Fi Status in Menu Bar” checkbox.
- You can name the ad hoc network whatever you wish, then select a channel from the pop-up menu. The default channel is 11, but you can also choose channel 1 or 2.
- Make sure your Mac is connected to the newly created ad hoc network.
- On the iPad, open Settings > Wi-Fi and select your ad hoc network.
- Connect to your Mac from Omni TR’s Connect screen.
