So I have downloaded virtual DJ's Iremote app for my ipod and it works perfectly when using a wifi connection
I should be able to use this using an ad hoc network as well according to virtual DJ's site

if I set up the ad hoc as a WPA network the ipod will not connect to it
If i set it up as open or WEP the ipod connects but then in virtual dj it says error

any idea on how to fix?

What version of the Ipod do you have? Is it compatible with WPA encryption?

Windows 7
  • Open the Start Menu.
  • Click Control Panel.
  • Click Network and Internet.
  • Click Network and Sharing Center.
  • Under Change your networking settings, click Set up a new connection or network.
  • Select Set up a wireless adhoc (computer-to-computer) network.
  • Click on Next twice.
  • Enter the Network name. This can be anything you want IE: "Virtual DJ Adhoc"
  • Select the Security WPA (or WEP).
  • Enter the Security key or password.
  • Check Save this network check box.
  • Click Turn on Internet connection sharing.
  • Next Configure Your Ipod
  • Tap on the Settings icon in your iPhone main menu.
  • Click on Wi-Fi.
  • Your adhoc network (the Network Name you assigned in step 8) should appear in the list.
  • Click on you network.
  • Enter the Password.
