Ok, I have been testing a little in Windows (reinstalled drivers...)

The driver config has a "802.11 AdHoc" mode (and AdHoc, infrastructure)
SSID is correct
TxRate is Fully automatic
PS (power save) in Disabled
Channel is correct (2)

WEP 64 bit, manually entered HEX

With the Prism test utility I found out that the mode toggles between:
"Host IBSS" and "Basic Service Set" (BSS)
(the tool has an IBSS mode too...)
In Host IBSS mode I got associated.
After configuring Network (IP, DNS, Gateway) I got connection!!!
But I lost it soon thereafter...

An idea:
- Can there be several "Host IBSS" in a net? If not, I really would like
  the Gateway/Router/Firewall to be that and not one of the clients...
