This is a pocket router and I think you can find them for around $50. This little device is a full blown router, and it fits in your pocket. All you have to do is to power up this router, your laptop, and the Eye-Fi should be able to download as usual. Plus, this pocket router can be used to share net connections so its handy to have around in any case.

jason0518, we address this issue for the Eye-Fi Pro cards specifically. You don' need to have a wired Ethernet connection for this to work. If you have already set up your Eye-Fi Card, then while you are still on an infrastructure wireless network, go to the Settings page of the Eye-Fi Manager, with the Eye-Fi Card inserted.
In the drop down list, click on 'set up ad hoc network'.
You will now be on a page that does not require Internet access. You can down deploy your ad hoc network (instructions pdf here), click the 'refresh' option in the drop down to see your ad hoc network.
Select the ad hoc network and add it to the card.

I get to the page that you say doesn't need internet access, and select the ad hoc option, then deploy my ad hoc from my computer but when I click the "refresh " option in the drop down, it seems to get stuck in searching. The list never refreshes. I think jason0518 might be right.
mcguyver, can you see the newly deployed ad hoc network in the drop down list of your Airport (in the Mac menu bar)?
If you can PM me the card log after you deploy the ad hoc network and try connecting to it, that will help us debug.

Can you guys give me a little more information about your systems - we'd like to figure out why the list of ad hoc networks on that page isn't showing up for you.
Can you please navigate to http://manager.eye.fi/diagnostics.php and post the output you see back to the forums. If you are using Firefox as your browser, can you please list the plugins you are using - sometimes Firefox plugins can interfere with the communication between the Eye-Fi Manager Website and the Eye-Fi Manager Software. Also, if you are using Firefox, can you try temporarily switching to a different browser just to see whether the root of this issue is the browser or not.
PS. Cool user name mcguyver - wish I had thought of it

I've followed the directions line by line, but when the status get sto:
Verifying the network password...
Stop using Windows XP
Everything you mention is an issue with Win XP and ad-hoc, it has nothing to do with the Eye-Fi Card or anything else, that's how windows sent it up. Any other system will work better, but if you really want to use XP I can find and post the link to instructions that will actually work better and limit the amount of time that it takes XP to re-join it's own network, I've had success using it, but it is alot easier to use a Mac for ad-hoc.
