Sorry but I also forgot to add my iwconfig which is weird after the
setting to pseudo ad-hoc:

[root at monaco ~]# iwconfig
lo        no wireless extensions.

eth0      no wireless extensions.

wifi0     IEEE 802.11b  ESSID:"mtx-client"  Nickname:"monaco.uni.lux"

As you can see the signal level = noise level. The card after this is
blind!!! Dead link.i cannot ping anything...
