thanks. i have it working now with 2 ipaqs seeing each other. i guess i
had the base station address wrong last time when i tried to add it
with iwspy.

i wonder if there is any way find out the ip address that
corresopnds to a given wlan hardware address?

ps. in case anyone is wondering, the plan here is to let
the ipaq be aware of their location based on signal quality
metrics from several different (stationary) ad hoc nodes.
