thank you very much for your reply:
I use Kernel Version 2.6.27-rc3 and wpa_supplicant 0.5.10
I have wlan usb stick ASUS WL176G or an GIGABYTE which uses the rt2xx driver which is included in the kernel....
Do you have any idea ?
Thanks a lot

What kernel version? What wireless hardware, and what drivers are being
used? mac80211-based drivers may not successfully create adhoc BSSes
without some patches I posted to the kernel and wpa_supplicant (which
are in 2.6.26 and wpa_supplicant 0.6.4).
