I have spent hours trying to connect to wisky for my MYT. Im using win 10 and the latest build of sky x.
I have went through your instructions and have went to several forums on ad hoc networks but nothing is working. Any help would be wonderful. Im at my witts end with it.
Sorry i failed to mention that the error message i recieve after i type in the command line for the ibss connection, it says the BSS type is not valid.
If you run the following from a command prompt/shell, what is the WDI version, and does it report IBSS as "Supported", or "Not Supported"?
netsh wlan show wirelesscapabilities

Sorry for the delay
It says not supported
Thanks for confirming.
It is my understanding that Microsoft have discontinued support in later builds of Windows 10 (and apparently Windows 7 and 8 as well) of non-secured, ad-hoc network connections. We had developed a procedure to work around this, but that work-around reportedly no longer works.
You could instead use a wireless router to establish a network to which both the Paramount's WiSky card and your iOS device could connect. If you already have such a router at your site, great. If not, and especially for portable use, you could consider a portable router like this one (to give one example; this is not an endorsement of that product). While we've not tried it, you should be able to power this from one of the USB ports ("A" or "B") on the Paramount's Versa-Plate. Then configure the WiSky and your iOS device to join the router's network, and provide TheSky HD with the WiSky's IP address, as assigned by the router.
give this a try....
Let me know if this works...

I have one of those and it works fine. I use a West Mountain Radio RigRunner 4004U that takes 12V and gives me two +5V USB to run things like that.
