Hi crew. After having had these kind of troubles,

ieee80211_power.c:240: error: implicit declaration of function '__skb_append'

I downloaded madwifi from svn (I removed the http for spam troubles):

svn co madwifi-0.9.4

I compiled and installed on a Ubuntu 9.04 machine with kernel 2.6.28-11-generic. I didn't test anything but adhoc mode AND it doesn't work: The card is able to send (I see arp requests upon invoking ping requests) but it doesn't get any reply (which I can clearly see as being transmitted with anther monitoring interface. The old gentoo distribution I had worked fine. lspci returns

I'm able to see the other networks (iwlist scan) and I can get the beacons and update my BSSID (reading from iwconfig I see "Cell: 02:80:48:57:CA:6B").

Thanks Bye
