I have to linux mobiles running in adhoc mode.
I tried to change the Channel from 0 to one of the other 11 channels.
Looking the proc-files up after the change, the channel and frequency
did not change.
Any idea how to do that?
Might be, that only channel 0 can be used for ad hoc mode.

I do not know anything really about the 802.11 spec, but my understanding
of the behavior of these cards is this.
When a station is put in adhoc mode with an ssid of "foo" and a channel of
"x" the card will scan _all_ channels for packets/beacons with ssid "foo".
If it finds one on channel "y" , it will set it's channel to "y".
One reliable way to insure that channel "x" is used instead of "y" is to
start with all stations using different ssid's and channel "x", then
change all stations to the same ssid.
