Ad Hoc is a mode of connection for a Wireless Interface. The wirless interface needs to be configured in Ad Hoc mode.

To use the laptop to share internet connection you need at least two netwrok interfaces.

How is the laptop connecting to the Internet in the first place?

If it is Wireless, why can you not connect the phone to the same wireless source?

What is the model number of this laptopn?

If you computer has a wireless option

Go to Control Panel > Network and Internet > Network and Sharing Center
Under Change your networking settings, click Set up a new connection or network
Select Set up a wireless ad hoc (computer-to-computer) network
Enter your Network name, and enter a Security key if wanted
Check the box for Save this network and click Turn on Internet connection sharing on next page

As mentioned before, whats the model of the laptop. It seems that I was confused, sorry to encroach in on StuartS, for some reason the two posts from you were not displayed previously.

Edit: On another note, now it looks like they are the same post. It looks like it must be a glitch on my end.

Are you looking in the right place.

In the Netwrok and Sharing Screen then is an option to Set up a new Netwrok connection.

From there you have the options the connect to a wireless, broadband, dial-up, AD Hoc or VPN Connection.

This is assuming you have a working wireless interlace in the laptop,
