Today, many people carry numerous portable devices, such as laptops, mobile phones, PDAs and mp3 players, for use in their professional and private lives. For the most part, these devices are used separately that is, their applications do not interact. Imagine, however, if they could interact  directly: participants at a meeting could share documents or presentations; business cards would automatically find their way into the address register on a laptop and the number register on a mobile phone; as commuters exit a train, their laptops could remain online; likewise, incoming email could now be diverted to their PDAs; finally, as they enter the office, all communication could automatically be routed through the wireless corporate campus network. In this paper, the  describe the concept of ad hoc networking  and classification of wireless Ad-hoc Networking.
