Hello Steve,

I folowed the instructions mentioned and was able to get the Wi-Fi Adhoc mode. However, when i try to connect to the created adhoc mode via laptop, it doesnt connect. Any guess why??

In ipv4 settings, i have given automatic DHCP?

Regards,
Akshay

I followed the above instructions using the current GNOME r13 image
and was able to create an ad-hoc network with my Overo.  I was able to
see and connect to the ad-hoc network with my laptop.

So it seems to work for me.
