Uhm, client side ? I have two cards that talk to each other in adhoc mode,
there is now client/server as I understand it ?

Anyhow both ends says "associated".

I think this is a problem with the 5.1 / current wi driver since it works
fine on 4.8 and 5.0...

PS: wicontrol protests that both th -p and -c options are depricated
and that it should be handled with ifcondif mediaopt, however I cant
get ifconfig to take any mediaopts related to those two options ? help?
