As you see i'm newbie here. I get a RPi, and i put raspbian in her, all work fine except internet that wan't connect . The hotspot is an nokia mobile running JoikuSpot Lite that creates only Ad-hoc and no Infrastructure.

When i try to scan, works fine and show me the wireless point, but when i try add and connect just tell "Scanning" and no connect.

The program that i'm using in Raspbian is WiFi Config and one D-Link usb-adapter.

  • Will it connect to any wifi at all (besides the hotspot)? – goldilocks Jul 13 '13 at 12:49
  • Yes, i want to connect with an ad-hoc access point that i have. – Edilson Jul 13 '13 at 16:06
  • I don't have a solution for you, but I can recommend looking up Debian wireless troubleshooting. It will give you somewhere to start. Good luck! – Butters Jul 15 '13 at 19:54
  • I can't see where i mark it. – Edilson Mar 10 '14 at 22:28

You must configure your wlan in ad-hoc mode, just type :

sudo -i
ifconfig wlan0 up
iwconfig wlan0 mode ad-hoc
iwconfig wlan0 essid "YOUR_SSID"
ifconfig wlan0 netmask

Do not forget to change YOUR_SSID with the name of your ad-hoc network.

To make these change permanent, just add these lines to /etc/rc.local
