Wireless tethering with WPA supplicant

Since my G1 phone has been rooted, I can use wireless tethering. However, initially I had difficulties configuring WPA supplicant to recognize the G1 tether, which apparently is running in ad-hoc mode. After setting ap_scan=2 in my wpa_supplicant.conf, everything started working flawlessly with the following configuration:

ap_scan=2 

network={
 ssid="G1Tether"
 key_mgmt=NONE
 mode=1
 # Keys specified without quotes are hex keys
 wep_key0="1234567890123"
 wep_tx_keyidx=0
 priority=5
}
