Talk:Ad-hoc networking

From ArchWiki

Custom systemd service (with wpa_supplicant and static IP)

Here is the original unit file by User:Bkuri:

Description=Network connectivity for %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


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.

Bluetooth Adhoc networks. Here or on Bluetooth page?

I don't if you knew but it is possible to create ad-hoc IP networks on Bluetooth. The connection speed is much worse than WiFi but it could be used at the same time.

The question is where to place instructions.
