Excellent! good job!
If I were you I'd find out where that weird network mask came from (225.225.225.0), because I'm thinking as soon as you shutdown/reboot, you're going to see it again.

ps: or was that a typo and it's really 255.255.255.0?

oh yea, hehe that was a typo :-P, it switched back automatically for some reason, and yea, reboot will be back to the same place again, so i added . /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 in rc.local so it'll fix it every time i boot up ^_^, thank you so much, now i don't need the ethernet cable anymore ^_^

can you set the access point to channel 1, the whole recently implemented regulatory domain thing is still a bit alpha yet and it seeks to dictate valid channels based on locale, channel 1 is certainly valid in all locales.

Hi Beavis,

With the additional info you provided about validating channels based on locale, I did a little research into the source code and compared code between pre2 and pre3. In pre3, with the invalid reg. domain, it fell back to FCC (USA) default, while in pre2 it just returns with the error message. So I tried version pre3 and guess what? It works like a charm. I am in fact writing this using the wireless driver. You might want to add this to your HOWTO troubleshooting section for people getting stuck in Ad-Hoc mode. Thanks for all your help!

Excellent! I *knew* you would get it going eventually (and to think you probably almost threw it out the window )...thanks for the info, it would seem that it's time to put some kind of troubleshooting section in there as you say.

Of course, there's been trouble both ways lately, with some having trouble with pre3 and later and some having trouble with anything earlier than pre3. I've even seen people having to drop all the way back to 0.1h. Makes it hard to recommend versions, so I'm currently recommending people to start with the latest version and fall back if there are problems.

I understand why pre2 didn't work for you, but how about pre4? It would certainly have all of pre3's code with some additions, weird ain't it?
