I have build and booted the last linux wireless-netx-2.6 tree:
( git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/linville/wireless-next-2.6.git)

This tree includes the ad-hoc patch for zd1211rw.


I tried to run these two actions:
(I must say that I did not tried this USB nic with other modes before on this

iwconfig wlan0 mode ad-hoc
ifconfig wlan0 up

I get:
SIOCSIFFLAGS: Connection timed out

in in the kernel log I get:
Jul 10 15:40:53 kernel: usb 1-4: firmware version 0x4330 and device
bootcode version 0x4810 differ
Jul 10 15:40:54 kernel: usb 1-4: USB control request for firmware
upload failed. Error number -110
Jul 10 15:40:54 kernel: zd1211rw 1-4:1.0: couldn't load firmware.
Error number -110

What should I do ? is it has to do with some firmware mismatch ?
Any ideas?
