I got libertas-2.6 from git, compiled and booted new kernel and module 
(I use fw 5.220.10.p5) on gentoo.
I also have two laptops that are already in mesh. I set the gentoo box 
to the right channel and set the MAC as follows:
ifconfig eth3 down hw ether 00:17:C4:28:0A:F1
ifconfig eth3 up
ifconfig msh0

then the gentoo box is setup exactly like the two laptops, except that 
the msh0 interface is in "Repeater" mode instead of the echoed "ad-hoc" 
in the laptops.

The two laptops ping each other fine, but the gentoo box cannot ping the 

Any ideas?
