>Release: freebsd 8.2
In the hardware support page, I found FreeBSD 8.2 suppots "Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG MiniPCI network adapters ( wpi(4) driver)", also in the "WPI(4)" page, I saw "The wpi driver provides support for the Intel 3945ABG Wireless network adapter wpi supports station, adhoc, and monitor mode operation."
But after I had complied kernel according the wpi(4), the WLAN card cann't suppots adhoc.
Please see below:
