Re: Orinoco Gold in Ad-hoc mode
inet xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx netmask xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx NONE
!wicontrol \$if -n "ghetto.wireless"
!wicontrol \$if -f 10
!wicontrol \$if -p 1

this has been our experience.
netgear wireless nics will talk to the orinoco's while in adhoc, BUT you can
not get two orinoco's to talk toghether in adhoc mode or for that matter a
moral of the story, keep everything set to BSS mode for compatibliity.
