hello,
     i am curious to know whether hostap supports ad-hoc mode because  i am 
unable  to estalish my ad-hoc network  .
      my card is prism2 based (compaq wl100 card)
the other machine has cisco card.
    
      i have run following commands on two laptops as follows

machine 1:having hostap driver
          iwconfig wlan0 essid test-adhoc
          iwconfig wlan0 mode managed
          iwconfig wlan0 channel 3
          ifconfig wlan0 192.168.6.x

machine 2:
          iwconfig wlan0 essid test-adhoc
          iwconfig wlan0 mode managed
          iwconfig wlan0 channel 3
          ifconfig wlan0 192.168.6.x

and when i try to ping each other it does not work.


does anybody know the solution?


thanks in advance
