I have a working peer-to-peer Ad-hoc wireless (wlan0) network setup in Fedora-17 via Network Manager.
However, it only works if Network Manager wireless-security option is set to "NONE".
The past few days I have been trying to get WEP or WPA security working but without success & I've
concluded that both of these security measures only support "Managed" wireless networks that use
(AP) Access Points.
Is my conclusion correct?
Since I don't have a Managed Wireless setup, I can't even verify that that WEP & Wpa will work with
Beside Network Manager, I tried to setup WEP & WPA on wlan0 manually via /usr/sbin/wpa_supplicant
