I am trying to setup point to point networks between two Avila boards (Processor : XScale-IXP42x Family) running Openwrt( KAMIKAZE 8.09.1) and Linux kernel 220.127.116.11.
I am trying to setup two configurations : 1. AP-Client 2. Adhoc-Adhoc
I tried both but nothing seems to work. I am able to setup the respective AP, Client and Adhoc modes but they somehow don't associate with other peer. I am using madwifi(atheros) driver.
For e.g. - one configuration :
iwconfig ath0 ath0 IEEE 802.11g ESSID:"wsid" Nickname:"" Mode:Managed Frequency:2.412 GHz Access Point: Not-Associated Bit Rate:1 Mb/s Tx-Power:28 dBm Sensitivity=1/1 Retry:off RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off Encryption key:off Power Management:off Link Quality=0/70 Signal level=-97 dBm Noise level=-97 dBm Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0 Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:0 Missed beacon:0
Same thing happens when I use the Ad-hoc mode. It gets the configuration but Access point remains Not-Associated.
I would love to share more details but Can someone provide me some leads into this. I just want to ping one board from other.
Please help me migrate this problem on relevant forum in case it does not belong here.
