Thanks for the quick response

'to associate' means that windows recognizes the WLAN-Network? It does
recognize the 'test'-network - the IP of the notebook is 192.168.1.2, but
when I do a 'ping 192.168.1.1' ( to my linux-Box, see below) on the
Notebook, there is no response AND it seems the packets don't reach the
Linux box, because a 'cat /proc/net/dev' on the linux box shows:

'ifconfig -a' on my linux box
