Well, that's part of the problem. I don't know how to pull that
informatio out his machine in MS-Windows world. :-)
[Your analisys about Windows and worms is pretty funny :-)]
Anyway, I think my problem relies in the fact that I cannot change any
of the values ndiswrapper puts there for me. Once the wlan0 device is
there, I have been unable to change essid, frequency, etc.
The only one parameter I have been able to change is the mode. Going
from ad-hoc to managed, but that's about it.
Well, thanks again. I will visit the sites to see what new I can learn.
