I'm trying to set up DSL to accept ad-hoc wifi connections. The goal is to make a picture frame for my workplace. They don't have any wifi access points there, so I have this old laptop with a workable wifi card (IBM 390 + Buffalo WLI-CB-G54S) which is working through ndiswrapper.
What I want to do now is:
1)make the wifi card work ad-hoc
2)use a dhcp server on DSL
3)be able to transfer pictures onto the DSL box from either another laptop or a PocketPC with FTP
I have got most of the parts working:
1)sudo iwconfig wlan0 mode ad-hoc
2)using Curaga's busyserver.tar.gz mydsl extension, but everytime I launch it I get an error message:
udhcpd: cannot open /var/lib/misc/udhcpd.leases for reading
3)using ftp boot code (I'm using frugal install of DSL 4.2.2)
Does anyone have any experience with such a setup? I am wondering if my dhcp.conf file is not ok, or if I'm doing something else wrong?
In the dhcp.conf, I only changed the interface to wlan0 instead of eth0.
Thanks for any help!
