I have laptop Lenovo Thinkpad t61p with Intel PRO/Wireless 4965AGN Mini-PCI Express Adapter that served by iwlegacy (module iwl4965) drivers.
I have LAN internet connection that I want to share over WiFi. I've installed Arch Linux and NetworkManager. And I followed the guide:
- Install the dnsmasq package to be able to actually share the connection.
- Click on nm-applet -> Create new wireless network.
- Follow wizard (if using WEP be sure to use 5 or 13 character long password, different lengths will fail).
- Settings will remain stored for the next time you need it.
After It there wifi ad-hoc connection is turned on. And other devices can see it. But there is no actual network inside. There is no DHCP requests and response. There is no actual ping and working DNS server.
iw list modes (full output of
Supported interface modes: * IBSS * managed * monitor
So if I'm right ad-hoc should work at least.
I see some errors with trace in logs: http://pastie.org/private/0ypnqg11nwguektki1yog
- Is it possible to create Real AP on my wlan adapter?
- Is it possible to create Ad-Hoc on my wlan adapter?
- What should I do to reach above goals?
P.S. By the way. It is possible to connect to created ad-hoc network with any password. But I'm not sure may be it is the way that ad-hoc should work.
