Network crash in pseudo ad-hoc

when you see signal level = -100Bm, it means that your card is not getting
any signal at all.

The following configuration script works fine for me when I have to put my
cards into pseudo ibss mode :

iwconfig wlan0 essid XYZ
iwconfig wlan0 channel 1
iwconfig wlan0 mode Ad-Hoc
prism2_param wlan0 pseudo_ibss 1
prism2_param wlan0 oper_rates 8

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"
          Mode:Managed  Frequency:2.467 GHz  Access Point: None
          Bit Rate:11 Mb/s   Sensitivity=1/3
          Retry min limit:8   RTS thr:off   Fragment thr:off
          Encryption key:off
          Power Management:off

          Link Quality=0/70  Signal level=-100 dBm  Noise level=-100 dBm
          Rx invalid nwid:0  Rx invalid crypt:0  Rx invalid frag:0
          Tx excessive retries:7  Invalid misc:422   Missed beacon:0

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