Hi all,

I'm having a hard day today...  I am setting up a Mobile IP test bed based on 
KAMEs MIP6 implementation, but have hit a snag even before I can test it.

I can set the cards (a Netgear 301 using wi and a Cisco aironet using an) to 
infrastructure mode.  I can even turn IBSS on and off, althouh I have noted 
some very odd behaviour with ifconfig.... more later...

how do I get the cards to act as a AP (server) rather than an AP (client)??

I seem to recall something about turning on the bridging within the card????
