As of know i have three devices running olsrd with network config
 as follows
r1 network configuration
mode adhoc
ip address

r2  mode adhoc

r3  mode adhoc

the routing table of r1 shows r2 in 1st hop and r3 in second hop.
The hello packets are sent to r2 and r3, but r1 cant ping r3
The routing table of r2 does not have r1 and r3 in any hops but it receives
hello packets from both and can ping both the devices
The routing table of r3 shows r2 in 1st hop and r1 in second hop.
The hello packets are sent to r2 and r1, but r3 cant ping r1

All the devices are running on wireless interface wlan0
