	Hi,

	The hardware work sligthly differently, which explain
the difference. The old Wavelan report the values for the last
received packet, whereas the new report the value for the last
packet from the Access Point. As you don't have any Access
Point, no values...
	However, in the wvlan_cs, I did introduce a useful
hack : in ad-hoc mode, /proc/net/wireless report the values
for the first address in the spy list. Of course, you need to
set something in the spy list for this to work...
	So, on each node, just set with "iwspy" the address
of the partner, and you will get what you want in
/proc/net/wireless. You may used the new "wireless.opts" stuff
in 3.1.14 to do that automatically each time you insert the
card...
	Good luck !

	Jean
