I'm running Ubuntu 11.10 and I want to create a ad-hoc wireless network. I get that my wireless card (INTEL 4965AGN) apparently does not support the ad-hoc mode:
$ sudo service network-manager stop network-manager stop/waiting $ sudo ip link set wlan0 down $ sudo iwconfig wlan0 mode ad-hoc Error for wireless request "Set Mode" (8B06) : SET failed on device wlan0 ; Operation not supported.
On Windows instead an ad-hoc network works just fine. I checked here but it seems like all available drivers should be embedded already.
Does anybody have a similar issue? maybe with another card and there's some way to activate the functionality.
Alternatively, could you please suggest some usb wifi adapter that supports ad-hoc?
