ok. i am using mandriva linux 2010.1 spring.
i can figure out how to get my wireless card to connect to wifi and even how to connect to an already existing adhoc network i think.
what i dont know is how to set my machine to broadcast a new adhoc network which i need it to do when im at home and just swapping files between this machine and a win vista machine (ugh vista, microsoft basicaly bent us over a barrel and raped us and essentially got away with it bc most of us went out and bought win 7 after).
ok so my questions are this.
1. how do i make my wireless broadcast a new adhoc?
2. do i need to do anything to set it back to getting wifi later? (cant use a wired connection so please dont suggest it)
3. if i need some extra software to manage or configure this, what software do i need? and where do i download it?
4. when i go in through the net applet to manage networks and hit configure, will that allow me to set it to broadcast an adhoc? (wont be surprised if its a no because it has not worked for me yet)
