When I try to mount my card "Atheros Communications Inc. AR242x 802.11abg Wireless PCI Express Adapter" in ad-hoc mode: "sudo modprobe -r ath_pci; sudo modprobe ath_pci autocreate=adhoc" or "sudo wlanconfig ath0 create wlandev wifi0 wlanmode adhoc" my system hangs and CapsLock? led is starting to blink..

PS managed mode works very good. But i also need ad-hoc

System: Ubuntu 8.04.1. Kernel: 2.6.24-19.

I had the same problm with my AAO. I gave up, and shut it down. When it got cooler, i tried again. Guess? It works. My opinion: it's the temperatur. But i'm not really sure.
