no, this does not mess up olsrd, it probably messed up your wifi
connectivity per se.
Cross check: install static routes and try to ping.
If that works, then it messed up olsrd. But I predict that static
routes will also not work in that case.
no idea, wifi drivers are not the greatest thing in linux.
