Broadcasting data on Adhoc Network...

I need a way that I can transmit data across an adhoc wireless network without any error checking or it going to any other client or server.

I am working on a personal little project to see how far data can possibly be interpeted correctly across current wireless technologies.
I will be writing my own error checking routines soon enough, although I would really like to start from the begining...

So, how can I open a connection to start transmitting data without another client who will guarenteed be recieving it?

Thanks a million guys...

I'm not sure what you mean by "it going to any other client or server." On a wireless network that's hard to manage.

The UDP protocol has no error detection or correction and so might do what you want.
I dont know if the wireless hardware will add some though. That wouldnt suprise me.

You can probably do some simple tests with netcat.
