I've got a problem : I have a compaq presario X1005EA (centrino intel 
wireless card).

I've managed to load the driver and was able to assign an address on my 
wlan interface... Now, I can ping myself but none of the other machines 
in the network... I'm in ad-hoc mode to begin (I've tried a bit to do it 
in a managed mode, but it doesn't work too)...

Commands output :

Note that I changed the license key and the mac address before sending 
this mail. This is still a free trial key : maybe I'll register if this 
finally works...

All other machines are able to ping each other : they are w2000 between and

"ping" is ok (that's me), but "ping" (or 2,3,4) 
is not...

Thanks a lot in advance for any help
D'avance merci à tous...
