    which driver supports ad-hoc mode wlan?


    hi everybody,
    I am using RH9 (2.4.22) , and trying to setup wlan on my desktop for ad-hoc mode.

    if you get madwifi driver running, just do a iwconfig <card name> mode Ad-Hoc, to get into ad-hoc mode. The mode and other stuff are set by the wireless-tools package, if you have trouble with madwifi, try ndiswrapper.

    If you have a router/access point, then it should be set to managed mode.
    Life is complex, it has a real part and an imaginary part.
