I am trying to create an adhoc network with following command in ubuntu 16.04:
sudo iwconfig wlan0 mode ad-hoc essid my-mesh-network ap 02:12:34:56:78:9A channel 1
however when I try to enable the interface, its giving me error
sudo ip link set up dev wlan0
rtnetlink answers device or resource busy
This problem comes only when the interface mode is set to "Ad-Hoc"
monitor mode or
managed mode, this issue does not come.
Can you please tell me if this issue is due to the driver limitation or I am missing anything. Thanks in advance.
