Description Bill Nottingham 2005-06-11 02:57:24 UTC
Patch attached.

Need to call set_wireless_config, otherwise the device isn't actually set as
ad-hoc, nor is the key or rate set to match the other node.

And, of course, I use DHCP on my ad-hoc network. :) Perhaps it should check
for dhcp, and then do autoip if that fails.

Comment 2 Dan Williams 2006-07-10 02:46:17 UTC
Somewhat obsolete since we use wpa_supplicant now.  However, there are a few
issues still with Ad-Hoc, mainly that wpa_supplicant doesn't support setting the
channel yet so "Create new Network..." doesn't work quite correctly.
