I'm having a hard time understanding the default Windows XP wireless connections screen, the real question is how do I make an Ad-hoc network and change settings and how do I manually configure an access point? Any sort of help page would well, help.

I assume you're trying to connect to a private home connection? If so, Ad-hoc is only used to network with individual PCs. Most households have a wireless router which hosts the wireless connection, this would be your access point.

 

If you have this wireless router on and have wireless set to on, you should be able to pick up the signal of that router and it should show up in the wireless connection screen. This is also depends on if you have a wireless adapter on this laptop/PC you are configuring this on.

I know about all of that, wondering how to manually connect to wireless access points, and create an ad-hoc network with a wireless card if possible.

Oh, okay. I assumed you were completely oblivious of how to connect. It's common to see this.

 

  1. Start > Control Panel > Network Connections
  2. Right click an available wireless connection and go to properties.
  3. Select the, "Wireless Networks", tab.
  4. Check, "Use Windows to configure my wireless network settings" - this will make it so Windows XP manages your wireless connections rather than your adapter software.
  5. Go to "add".
  6. Enter the SSID and the security information needed to connect.
  7. Optional: You can go to the, "Connection", tab and check, "Connect when this network is in range", if that's convenient for you.

When it comes to making an ad-hoc network using wireless adapters; I know it's possible but I've personally never done it. After searching, I might have found something to help you here.
