Is it possible to auto-join device-based networks on Snow Leopard (i.e. preferred)?

For example, by device-based network, I mean either a printer or an ad-hoc network.

The networks created by a standalone device, like a printer, are usually ad-hoc networks. What do you mean by auto-join? Do you want your computer to connect to it automatically when it is available? –  duci9y Sep 17 '12 at 6:24
    
Yes, I want to automatically connect to it when it is available. –  Adam Eberlin Sep 17 '12 at 19:28
    
I don’t have a copy of Snow Leopard, but I just tried on Mountain Lion and it works. So, there is a strong possibility it will work on Snow Leopard. –  duci9y Sep 18 '12 at 7:32
    
I still can't get it to work in Snow Leopard, even if I manually add the network to my preferred list. –  Adam Eberlin Sep 20 '12 at 22:51
