    Cool Unable to create Ad Hoc Wi-Fi after upgrading to 11.04

    Hi all,

    So here's the deal: I was happily using 10.10 to create ad-hoc wifi networks on my Dell Vostro 3700 with Broadcom BCM4313. Everything worked 100%

    After upgrading to 11.04, I am still able to connect to existing Wi-Fi networks, BUT I can't create ad-hoc networks anymore for some reason!

    Specifically, NetworkManager is failing with its association request to the driver. Repeatedly. Until I get another screen in the GUI prompting me for the password details. Ad Ininitum.

    Any ideas? Syslog attached.

    Adhoc networks do work fine (your link refers to a post in which adhoc networks were not supported). The problem is that I do not know how to change the beacon interval.

    Any idea?
    Many thanks

    Err, I'm not sure what you mean. Creating ad-hoc networks after upgrading to Natty is certainly not "fine", as I described in my post.

    If you are having a problem with setting your beacon interval, please start a new thread.

    Ugh, the problem seems to have resolved itself without any tinkering, so I can only assume it was due to some update which was released.
