Is it possible to set up wpa_supplicant to work in an ad-hoc mode?
I have a router with a Broadcom wireless card, but currently, its b43
Linux module doesn't support AP mode. So I have to use ad-hoc on this
device and on my laptop, if I want to connect both devices.
I tried to configure wpa_supplicant to work in ad-hoc mode, but I can't
even ping the other side.
This is the config I used on this device:
# IBSS/ad-hoc network with WPA-None/TKIP.
I can see the "testwpa" ESSID in Ad-Hoc mode when I do "iwlist eth1
scanning" on my laptop, but other than that, I can't even ping, tcpdump
doesn't show any received packets etc.
When I use WEP, it works, so hardware is fine ;)
