ad hoc mode

The mode of operation in a peer-to-peer wireless network, such as Wi-Fi or Bluetooth, in which computers communicate with each other rather than to a central base station (access point). Contrast with infrastructure mode. See 802.11, 802.15 and mobile ad hoc network. See also ad hoc and ad hoc query.
