Subject: iw set channel failed
Date: Tue, 03 Aug 2010 18:10:25 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Hi all,

When using iw to set the channel of mesh nodes working in ad hoc 
mode(with iw-tool installed), I got error:

# iw --debug dev wlan1 set channel 5

-- Debug: Received Message:
--------------------------   BEGIN NETLINK MESSAGE 
   [HEADER] 16 octets
     .nlmsg_len = 36
     .nlmsg_type = 2 <ERROR>
     .nlmsg_flags = 0 <>
     .nlmsg_seq = 947833964
     .nlmsg_pid = 2734
   [ERRORMSG] 20 octets
     .error = 0 "Success"
   [ORIGINAL MESSAGE] 16 octets
     .nlmsg_len = 16
     .nlmsg_type = 17 <0x11>
     .nlmsg_flags = 5 <REQUEST,ACK>
     .nlmsg_seq = 947833964
     .nlmsg_pid = 2734
---------------------------  END NETLINK MESSAGE   

Does someone know the possible reason?

Many thanks in advance.

p.s. iwconfig could work for this.
