There are three steps involved in creating an AdHoc network: creating your network base, enabling LAN sharing, and connecting your devices to your network.
Creating an AdHoc Network

The first step in creating your AdHoc network is to go to your Network and Sharing Center

button located in the left bar. Then click on Add

, and click on Next
Let the utility work. If it asks you to share your connection, you should accept the request and proceed directly to Step 3. Otherwise, proceed to Step 2.

Go back to the Network and Sharing Center
(Start> Network> Network and Sharing Center). On the left-hand side, click on Change Settings Map
Right-click on Local Area Connection
and select Properties
. Then, go to the Sharing
Check Allow other network users to connect through this computer's Internet connection

Connecting to an AdHoc Network
It is now time to ask the PC to connect to the AdHoc network.
Head to the Network and Sharing Center
one last time, and click on Connect or Disconnect
In the window that opens, click on the network name you created, and click Connect
Go into the application settings of your iPhone, iPod, or iPad and tap on WiFi
. Make sure that your WiFi is enabled, and tap on the network name that you chose in step 1.
