[OLSR-users] Ad-Hoc Mode and Channel

Hello olsr users,

I know this is a little off-topic but I think it's a problem that all
wireless user in ad-hoc mode can get.

Here in Brussels (Belgium) we run a Wireless network on the top of the town,
using olsr.  This network is in ad-hoc mode.  Normally the card are set to
channel 1 (we just migrate form channel 10), but when a box (we use soekris
with bering-uclibc)starts the channel switch to another (6 or 10 or another)
or stay in channel 1.

Is this because other poeple are using this channel and the card switch to
this one ?  Normally in ad-hoc mode, the channel is hardcoded in the config
file for the card.

I don't have any explanation for this problem, execpt this one, in ad-hoc
mode, if a card "see" another channel a power up, the card switch directly
to this channel ?

Does somebody has another idea or solution to avoid channel switching or
does somebody knows why the card switch to another channel ?

Many thanks
