Hey, I've created the section (spent a while trying to figure out how to do this, frustratingly it was quite simple in the end). Thought it would be a good idea to add for someone else wanting to do the same. If someone could have a go at doing it an modify it or message me and I'll rectify any issues (if any). --[[User:XFire|XFire]] 20:04, 13 March 2012 (EDT)

Custom systemd service (with wpa_supplicant and static IP)

Here is the original unit file by User:Bkuri:

/etc/conf.d/network-wireless-adhoc@<interface>
addr=192.168.0.2
mask=24
ssid=MySSID
freq=2432
/etc/systemd/system/network-wireless-adhoc@.service
[Unit]
Description=Network connectivity for %i
Wants=network.target
Before=network.target
BindsTo=sys-subsystem-net-devices-%i.device
After=sys-subsystem-net-devices-%i.device

[Service]
Type=oneshot
RemainAfterExit=yes
EnvironmentFile=/etc/conf.d/network-wireless-adhoc@%i
ExecStart=/usr/bin/iw %i set type ibss
ExecStart=/usr/bin/ip link set %i up
ExecStart=/usr/bin/ip addr add ${addr}/${mask} dev %i
ExecStart=/usr/bin/iw dev %i ibss join ${ssid} ${freq}
ExecStart=/usr/bin/wpa_supplicant -B -i %i -D nl80211,wext -c /etc/wpa_supplicant/adhoc.conf
ExecStop=/usr/bin/ip addr flush dev %i
ExecStop=/usr/bin/ip link set %i down

[Install]
WantedBy=multi-user.target

It is fundamentally flawed as the wpa_supplicant method is a replacement to the manual method, but he reported that the service file in Ad-hoc networking#Custom systemd service (with wpa_supplicant and static IP) does not work for him (see User Talk:Bkuri#Systemd with wpa_supplicant and static IP (ad-hoc version)). If the service file from the main page does not work for you and this one does, please provide some details so that we have some base ground on resolving this problem. Thanks. -- Lahwaacz (talk) 08:31, 2 September 2013 (UTC)
