I tried to execute these two commands step by step, and I found that iwconfig wlan0 essid okwlan modifies the bit rate and the frequency. iwconfig wlan0 mode ad-hoc changes this: Link Quality:0 Signal level:0 Noise level:0
Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0
Tx excessive retries:5 Invalid misc:0 Missed beacon:0
And of course, I tried consciously the same commands on the other PC, but I must have missed something. Just a precision: the ping on R and IPaq sometimes doesn't work, and I don't really know why.
Any idea or docs(I searched a lot)?
Thanks a lot
