    I need to know how to prevent winxp machine broadcast an ad hoc node.

    Here is the symptom. After I traveled and connect to a peer to peer (ad
    hoc) wireless like "free public wifi" or "free wifi". I come back and
    everyone from my office see my winpx node broadcast the ad hoc network as
    "free public wifi"

    even though my machine is set to AP only and does not automatically connect
    to an unsecure network.
