A desktop PC with Linux is sharing its internet
connection wirelessly to an Apple Powerbook G4.
Edimax EW-7117U on the desktop works in adhoc mode. The kernel version is 2.6.15-26.
When I boot the desktop and start using internet
on Powerbook, everything works well. As soon as I
put powerbook to sleep and wake it up again, I
have no access to the internet from the powerbook.
Mysteriously, "ifup wlan0 && ifdown wlan0" on the
desktop fixes the problem, so it doesn't seem
to be a problem on the Powerbook-end.
So putting the _remote_ computer to sleep somehow
breaks the wlan0-interface and it needs a reboot.
Is it possible that this is an issue on the
zd1201-driver? Anyway, many thanks for the
driver, it gets better every new version.
Contact me for more information (config files, details etc.)

This is annoying because it has to be done as
