When asking for help on any mailing list you should provide information
about what exactly you did already to try to get it to work. That helps
others to give you advice. Anyway: you need to manually set essid (also
bssid if your stations don't happen to automatically choose the same),
channel, ip and netmask. You should be able to ping each other machine
before trying to get olsr to work.

Now I am able to get 4 LINUX machines getting OLSR messages.

However, I need to use a wireless access point to help the 4 LINUX machine
"associated" to each other first, then the OLSR is able to see the 4 LINUX

Without using the wireless access point, the 4 LINUX machine cannot "see"
each other using the "ad-hoc" mode of the wireless cards.

Any idea what went wrong?

Thanks in advance.
