[b38tvvnpj]Problem[/b38tvvnpj] connection to adhoc peers works but no packet can be transmitted between them.

[b38tvvnpj]Diagnosis[/b38tvvnpj] The following command is run at boot
[code38tvvnpj]iwconfig wlan0 channel 2 essid wlandebug key off mode Ad-Hoc[/code38tvvnpj]
Another machine in the room can see the "wlandebug" adhoc network and can connect to it.
However, the two machines cannot ping each other, not a single packet is able to be transmitted.

How did you configure the two devices at the IP level? Did you properly set an IP address?
