Raspberry Pi ad-hoc networking

view story

http://stackoverflow.com – I want to try some networking projects with Raspberry Pis, and I need to just send packets between a pair of pis. I would be happy as a first step just being able to ping between to Raspberry Pis in ad-hoc mode. I have not successfully done this despite looking at several tutorials and examples online. I have 2x Raspberry Pis with the Debian Wheezy OS installed. I am using the following USB adapter which I installed firmware for on both pis and tested that they work by connected them in managed mode to a router: Bus 001 Device 004: ID 050d:945a Belkin Components F7D1101 v1 Basic Wireless Adap (HowTos)
