We setup a small wireless network here using IBSS-Adhoc mode with some very
different machines.

1. 486 with Orinoco Silver through ISA-PCMCIA bridge (wvlan_cs)
2. Windows 98 Laptop with Orinoco Silver
3. Linux Laptop with Netgear MA401 (orinoco_cs)
4. Titanium Powerbook with Airport Card

And it all works fine. I must say, the Powerbook wins hands down for
configuration. It autodetected the ESSID and pulled a DHCP address without

And to all those naysayers saying it couldn't be done with the Powerbook,
you were wrong.
