ad hoc vs infrastructure mode

By domicubano ·
Are there different security concerns to be addressed when using ad hoc as opposed to infrastructure mode? If so, can anyone advise as to what I need to look into before I switch over to ad hoc mode?

not really.

As long as you establish the adhoc connection with the correct PC (not with somebody elses PC)

You want to enable encyryption.

It doesn't hurt to limit the power settings to only as much as you need. Typically 30mw is fine for in an office and you don't need more than 10mw if the PCs are in the same room with each other. OTOH, if encryption is enabled, this really does not matter.
