    Configuring wireless card (DWL-G520) in Ad-hoc mode???


    I have got a DLINK DWL-G520 card on a FEDORA Core 3 terminal. Currently I have installed the card using ndiswrapper but the it fails to run in Ad-hoc mode which is my primary requirement. Anybody who has configured a wireless card in Adhoc mode on a linux distro is requested to help me out. Is there any other technique to configure the card in Adhoc mode except ndiswrapper?????

    Plz help me out

    If there are no native Linux drivers for it, you're stuck with ndis. It's flakey. It limits the features of the card. Solution? Buy a card with a supported chipset or spam D-Link to write a Linux driver (or at least release the specs).
