I have the Droid X with the .340 update and I am able to connect to wireless access points though I am having trouble getting a working connection via ad-hoc mode to my pc.
I have tried configuring a static ip/gateway address for the phone although the Droid X still tries to get an address from the network.
The SSID matches the setup on the computer and encryption is disabled for now.
I disabled the PC firewall for testing though still could not connect.
I am using wireless-G mode.
I think it is likely I have to configure the PC wireless network to match the phone though I am not sure what those settings should be.

We do not support static IP. The settings cannot mock your phone because it is a dynamic IP, which always changes, on every session, so the settings would never match.

I was afraid of that being the case. I don't understand why this would be left out intentionally. While traveling I will have to bring a router as well.
You can always google a workaround for it. a simple google search on "droid X Ad-Hoc fix " should get you what you need.
the router gets the input from the modem and i don't follow how taking a router with you will work. i hope you're not planning to just plug the router in and have automatic wireless.
i've used a linksys wrt54g wired/wireless router for years and unless somethings changed, the hardwire's gotta be working before you get wireless.
I found a couple of alternatives to Connectify though I may not be able access the computer itself. The hotspot program may act merely as a conduit.
I am testing out my sync'ing and connectivity with my home network for now and am searching for modifications to Droid X WiFi to enable ad-hoc. I found a thread yesterday and will read up on it.
