Ad-hoc is also called peer to peer.  This basically allows several laptops (for example) to communicate with each other.  If one of them had an internet connection and was using ICS (Internet connection sharing) then the ad-hoc users could use the internet access of the one or jsut share files between one another.

Infrastructure mode, is having an Access Point where all (laptops for example)
connect to and provides a bridge to a wired network.

Its when no router is used. You connect to a computer that has internet access, Or when you want to share files or folders.

This is where wireless is great to have. You don't need a hub or switch.
