For some reason, Ad-hoc wireless was removed in Windows 8. However you can use the following scripts to start/stop an ad-hot network. Save it as 'adhoc.bat' and run 'adhoc start' or 'adhoc stop' with administrative privileges.

@echo off
if "%1" == "start" (
netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=[anyssidyouwant] key=[password]
netsh wlan start hostednetwork
) else (
if "%1" == "stop" (
netsh wlan stop hostednetwork
) else (
echo start or stop adhoc network?
)
)

WiFi-only tether.

Yes. Apple will not delete the app from your library. But you should back up the app file since Apple will remove it from their store, so if you get a new computer or delete the app, there's no way to get it back.

For those who want to use this app with Windows, here are the Windows (Vista, 7, 8) instructions:

I did buy and download the app but it is a little confusing for me. Maybe I will figure it out later. Thanks anyway.

Any carrier. Will work on AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile. Verizon, Rogers/Fido/Bell (Canada), etc as long as you have a data plan (you don't need a tethering plan).

Nope, it requires an ad-hoc connection.
