It is not possible to create an adhoc network in Windows 8, although you can join one, if it is in range. It is not possible to join an adhoc network in Windows RT.


However, if you need to create an adhoc network, I suggest you to use your favorite search engine and search for a third party tool or program, which can do the job correctly.


Please refer to this article for further reference:
