    Problems in configuring a wireless card in Ad-hoc Mode


    Hi i actually have two PCs with G520 (Dlink) wireless cards on them.I have Fedora Core 3 on one

    of them and XP on the other. The one with the XP seems to run this wireless card fine. On Fedora

    i am using Ndiswrapper and want to connect to the other PC in the Ad-hoc Mode.

    I have tried a lot and it seems that there is something wrong with the DHCP

    settings.Would i have to make one Pc dhcp client and one dhcp server to work in the Ad-hoc mode?

    How should i configure it so that i can network the both PCs in Ad-hoc mode?Plz help me out.
