Windows 7: Automatic Ad hoc connection

Automatic Ad hoc connection

With Windows 7, is it possible to set up a task in Task Scheduler that will automatically connect my computer to an Ad Hoc when it does not have an typical network connection?

I have searched on the internet and on this forum and I could not find anything that dealt with this issue, but rather told me how to automatically connect to an Ad Hoc upon logging onto my computer.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you very much in advance

It's possible but not particularly simple. You'd have to write some script or code to periodically poll the connection status of those other "typical" connections, and to initiate the ad hoc link if and only if nothing else is available.

(The more elegant and more complex solution would be to register your component for notification when a "net down" event occurs, so that you can invoke the ad hoc hook-up.)
