Hi,

I am trying to set up an ad-hoc wireless network between two laptops
each having Linksys WPC55AG dual-band wireless adapter. WPC55AG has
atheros chipset and the adapter works perfectly fine with madwifi (on
Fedora Core 4). I did the following settings on both the laptops:

Laptop 1:
     Using iwconfig: essid = myadhoc, mode = Ad-hoc
     Using ifconfig: IP Address - 192.168.1.1 (static address)
                            Netmask    - 255.255.255.0
                            Gateway    - 192.168.1.1

Laptop 2:
     Using iwconfig: essid = myadhoc, mode = Ad-hoc
     Using ifconfig: IP Address - 192.168.1.2 (static address)
                            Netmask    - 255.255.255.0
                            Gateway    - 192.168.1.1

When I started the wireless interfaces on both the laptops, initially,
both had different cell values. After restarting the interface a
couple times on one of the laptops, both cell values became the same.

However, when I tried pinging from one laptop to the other laptop, I
got the ping error "Destination Host Unreachable". Also, I noticed
another strange thing. After scanning the wireless network with
"iwlist ath0 scan", I got just 1 result which was:
[CODE]
Cell 01 - Address: 00:00:00:00:00:00
             ESSID: ""
             ...
[/CODE]

Could anyone please help me to solve this problem.

Thanks,

Abhishek Goswami.
