Infrastructure mode works very nicely for me (thanks again) but I just
tried adhoc mode for the first time and have not yet managed to get
that running. The symptom is
an0: flags=8823<UP,BROADCAST,NOTRAILERS,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
media: IEEE802.11 autoselect adhoc
status: no network
inet 192.168.3.4 netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast 192.168.3.255
inet6 fe80::240:96ff:fe34:bc64%an0 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x5
while the Lucent WaveLAN card I want to talk to (in another machine of
course) says "status: active".
This is -current as of 1.5P about a week ago.
Has anyone else managed to get adhoc mode working with these cards?
