It still doesnt work... Does it matter if the hostap installed in my
laptop is newer than the 0.3.7 at the station i am <->
i have normal connection. in pseudo gets crashed.

Well what you are saying above is:
name essid with xyz
change to channel 1
change to mode ad-hoc
use pseudo ibss
operate at 11Mbps
Thats what i do ...instead i use different essid (which it doesnt matter
as long as the two stations have a different one right?)
i work on channel 11 (i tried different channels but stll nothing)
when i set pseudo ibss 1 ..boom wireless is stuck!!!!!!kaput!
