I have configured my /etc/pcmica/wireless.opt in the following manner.
if [ -f /etc/wireless-scheme ]; then
case "$SCHEME,$ADDRESS" in
After connecting the card, the output of the iwconfig is essid=test,
mode=ad-hoc, channel=2.422G I am able to form an ad-hoc network of 2 more
more PCs with the same essid, mode, and channel.
Since yesterday, my neighbor has started using his AP with essid=linksys,
channel=2.437G, mode=Master. Now when I plug in the wireless card in my,
the output of the iwconfig is
wlan0 IEEE 802.11b ESSID:"linksys" Nickname:"stargate-6"
Mode:Ad-Hoc Frequency:2.437GHz Cell: 00:0C:41:67:B4:28
Bit Rate:2Mb/s Sensitivity=1/3
Retry min limit:8 RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off
Link Quality:0/92 Signal level:-73 dBm Noise level:-89 dBm
Rx invalid nwid:0 invalid crypt:0 invalid misc:0
If I try to use iwconfig to change essid to test and frequency to 2.422G,
Could you please let me know how to form my own network with essid=test,
mode=ad-hoc, and freq=2.422G even in the presence of a AP with the above
mentioned configuration in the neighborhood?
