Hi ,
As far as I understand, the scenario should be some thing similar to this<--NAT--><---adhoc---><--adhoc-->

The normal ad-hoc routing 802.11 only allows nodes to communicate directly
to each other.
So in order to transfer traffic from to, this ad-hoc must
employ some routing protocol like AODV (reactive) or OLSR (proactive). These
two are still in development process and some release working quite well.
