Wireless behaviour, range works but doesn't.
I've got a LinkSys WMP11 (with ndiswrapper 1.1 and the wmp11nds driver from the LinkSys CD) running in ad-hoc mode (can't set mode master, see my other post) with dhcpd, iptables' masquerade and ip_forwarding on.
That said I can get my iBook to connect and browse correctly, but not my Inspiron (with LinkSys Wireless G PCMCIA adaptor).
The strange thing is that at a certain range I can't even obtain an IP lease the signal is so bad, but if I move to a place where I do get a lease and then move back to the bad spot the only thing I can do is stream Shared iTunes music, and that works flawlessly. I can't even browse the internet though.
Any ideas why this service would work but no other?
