Thread: Ad-Hoc issues.

  1. Ad-Hoc issues.

    Lately my friends and I have been trying to make an Ad-Hoc network. I
    have been trying something that I think should work but it doesn't
    seem to. I'll post my methods and all relevant information below, but
    let me first explain what happens. When I make the network, it shows
    up on my friends (who are windows users) computers, and they are able
    to connect, but we cannot ping each other, we simply recieve the
    destination unreachable error. Here is what I am trying:

    sudo iwconfig eth3 mode ad-hoc essid "mynet" channel 11 key off
    sudo ifconfig 10.10.10.10 netmask 255.255.255.0 up

    On the windows computer I connect to "mynet" and I set the IP to
    10.10.10.11.

    ping -I eth3 10.10.10.11

    This yields "destination host unreachable".
    Same thing on the windows computer.

    If I am forgetting to include something important tell me. Any idea
    what could possible be wrong?

    Sorry about the double post, I'm not quite sure what happened here...
    Oh well.
