problem solved .. i tried to change the MAC Address of the card and i was able to create the ad-hoc connection ...

now i can connect to the new network by mobile phone but when try to start browsing i get message " No Gateway Reply" so i think that there is something missing at the connection .. can any one guide me to finish that problem..

i think that it's an ip problem because the connection count only at sent and received is "0"

your device is going to require an ip addressing scheme that is on the same subnet as your defaut gateway inorder to browse.

Thanks for posting back....always good to know what works and what doesn't. I probably wouldn't have thought of that solution so thanks again.
