Posted by bangoram on June 12 2007,13:45I am trying to use my atheros chipset based TL-550G(TP-Linlk WN-550G) along with my SBC. I tried with DSL embedded 3.2.tar.gz, I was very happy to see the card getting detected unfortunately I am unabel to put my card in ad-hoc mode whereas default "Managed mode" is being supported .Is this because of madwifi driver???
Can anyone suggest me how to overcome this problem.
this is the command which I tried
ifconfig ath0 192.168.1.234 netmask 255.255.255.0 up
iwconfig ath0 essid mesh channel 11 mode ad-hoc key off
the o/p error is
error for wireless request "Set Mode"(8B06)
SET failed on device ath0: invalid argument
