I'm running Ubuntu Intrepid Ibex after installing with Wubi. I'm running
array.org's kernel (2.6.27-8-eeepc) on a EeePC 1000H, because almost all
features are working "out-of-the-box" (gotta love this expression), such
as toggling wireless, card reader, camera, etc.. I couldn't get their
eeepc-config package to work well, so I'm running Grigori Goronzy's eee-
control (I haven't managed to use it to switch performance schemes

I don't have a wifi router, and I connect through a second dual-boot
laptop with Vista+Debian (Toshiba X200 with an Intel 4965AGN wireless
card). I still didn't manage to create a ad-hoc network in Debian so at
the moment I'm attempting to create a WPA2 ad-hoc network in Vista. I
tried setting up the ad-hoc with WPA2 and with WEP, with no success.
Could only connect setting up the ad-hoc with authentication+encryption
off (!!).

array.org's eeepc kernel module for rt2860 can see the ah-doc cell. For a WPA2 ad-hoc, iwlist scan shows:
ra0 Scan completed:
  Cell 01 - Address: 01:23:45:67:89:AB
                 Quality:100/100  Signal level:-31 dBm  Noise level:-97 dBm
                 Encryption key:on
                 Bit Rates:11 Mb/s
                 IE: IEEE 802.11i/WPA2 Version 1
                      Group Cipher : CCMP
                      Pairwise Ciphers (1) : CCMP
                      Authentication Suites (1) : PSK

BTW, dmesg shows a bunch of messages like this, but I'm not sure they're related to the problem:
[ 1212.380210] ===>rt_ioctl_giwscan. 2(2) BBS returned, data->length = 235

I'm also inclined to use array's module, since with the "radio"
feature seems to be turned off (I ran Paul Fox's "shtumble" utility, and
it complained of not being able to use the ra0's radio when modprobe'ing

I'm going to try Stephane's modules and see which one runs with my
system. Will report soon.
