ad-hoc to JoikuSpot
JoikuSpot is software which lets a Symbian S60 3rd Edition
share its internet connection via ad-hoc Wi-Fi.
I can happily connect via a WindowsXP box, but I'm not
having any luck connecting via a NetBSD (This is the first
time I've tried using ad-hoc 802.11 networking, so its
quite possible I'm missing something basic).
I've tried on two NetBSD 4.0/i386 boxes, one with a wpi and
the other an ath wireless chipset.
# wlanctl -a reports:

Adding 'chan 1' to the initial ifconfig line doesn't seem
to affect matters
Anyone have any thoughts as to what I'm missing?
