    Hi, i´m a complete newbie on Mac and OS X and i think this is a newbiequestion but here is my problem:

    I have a LinuxRouter with a Orinoco Wavelancard, this card is running in Ad-Hoc/Peer2Peer mode. I use the Linuxrouter to get access to Internet and the only way for me to communicate with the Linuxrouter is when i on my PowerBook click on the AirPort Icon in the meny and select "Create Network" That will put the AirportCard in Ad-Hoc/Peer2Peer mode. This is fine with me exept that when i reboot the Powerbook, the "Create Network" setting is gone so i have to do the same procedure againt. My question is...Is there a way to always create network when i boot up my Powerbook?

    Sorry to tell you this, but I haven't found a way to auto-start a network with my iBook and my tower. It's really frustrating. I thought about writing an AppleScript to do it for me, but I am not so well versed in AS, so I haven't wanted to take the time, yet.

    ***Any shareware developers who write an app to do this from the Sys Prefs will have my money!***

    It isnt really a big deal, but like you said its pretty frustrating that they left this part out of the network configuration.

    I'm still willing to pay for any app that can auto-start a network over Airport at system boot. Surely, someone wants to have a sure thing in the shareware market?

    Maybe someone even knows how to do this from the Terminal (then I could run it as a script) or AppleScript?
