Infrastructure/client mode often works but ad-hoc not, with some 
Linux drivers, with ndiswrapper, or whatever. It has been improving
lately, but I need to be sure. I use a wireless mesh as my main
connectivity and it works in ad-hoc mode.

Have you used ad-hoc mode? 
Is it an atheros chipset?
Do you use ath5k or madwifi?
