I checked out a copy of ng driver with the revision number 1587 submitted=
at "2006-05-20T11:36:43.360178Z" and used it to set up ad hoc networks i=
n a number of PCs in a wireless testbed. The testbed control system has a=
synchronization mechanism among the PCs and I can control when the modul=
e is loaded and the interface is configured. The tricky thing that I noti=
ced was that one of the interfaces of the ad hoc network has to be up fir=
st, followed by the configuration of other nodes. I set 3 seconds interva=
l between the first node and the rest, and this gave me a very high succe=
ss rate, without a failure in hundreds of times. When I set all the inter=
faces up simultaneously, sometimes it didn't work. This may become a prob=
lem when two nodes with the same ad hoc network issid can't receive the s=
ignal of each other first but late they can. Has anyone come across the s=
imilar problems and got a workaround?

Is there a reason you didn't try the latest release (0.9.1) or a more
recent revision (current is r1660)?
