Ad-Hoc mode allows two 802.11 wireless devices to connect in a peer-to-peer relationship, without the need for a wireless access point. This allows for the quick setup of wireless communication, but has significant disadvantages: security is weaker than with a properly-configured access point, and each wireless device can only peer with one other device at a time.

a network framework provided by IEEE 802.11 standard set in which all communications between wireless clients are made without the use of an Access Point (AP). This mode sometimes is referred as a peer-to-peer mode
An 802.11 networking framework in which devices or stations communicate directly with each other, without the use of an access point (AP). Ad-hoc mode is also referred to as peer-to-peer mode or an Independent Basic Service Set (IBSS). Ad-hoc mode is useful for establishing a network where wireless infrastructure does not exist or where services are not required.
