Whatever I did late in the past night: sleeping ten hours helped a lot!

I can now confirm that "r8712u" works in Ad-hoc mode using
"wpa_supplicant(8)", it gets its IP from DHCP, connects everywhere and
lets me get spam and all that.

I have a couple of fancy scripts overseeing things, much less intrusive
than network-managers, but I disabled parts of them and did everything
manually.

In the end it may well have been the windows-mobile device hanging on to
its (dead) DHCP lease, but without that mobiles logs I won't know.

I still wish "r8712u" would let me use wireless-tools/iwconfig, but
I can live with "wpa_supplicant(8)".

Thanks for your effort, guys!


regards, clemens
