e60 -> wlan: No gateway reply!


i'm stuck with getting my e60 online and i can't find the solution.
I can set up an access point by searching automatically for WLAN as long as the AP-mode is set to Ad-Hoc (iwconfig ra0 mode ad-hoc).
Infrastructure isn't found though i saw plenty of Infrastructure-WLANs
with the phone and was able to use the free ones.
As far as i see through it the wlan-card and the e60 do exchange packets (RX/TX) and also the connection is made (the four window(s)-like squares are filled out). but the browser (built-in one or opera) doesn't get over contacting.
in the active connections (e60) i can see the 28-byte-wise rising Sent-statisitics, but the reply is missing. i can even see the packets coming on my ra0-device (ifconfig ra0 -> RX bytes) of course without transmission following (TX bytes). what is missing in my routing table?

here my other relevant setup:

the "advanced connection settings" (which were uneasy to find) are:
IPv4 settings:
phone ip:
subnet mask: (tried also
default gateway:
dns address(es): both ones of my ISP (both online of course)
{IPv6 settings: well-known}
Ad-Hoc channel: 7

my WLAN-card gives:

#ifconfig ra0
ra0 Protokoll:Ethernet Hardware Adresse 00:08:A1:94F:AB
inet Adresse: Bcast: Maske:
inet6 Adresse: fe80::208:a1ff:fe94:dfab/64 Gültigkeitsbereich:Verbindung
RX packets:3365 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:348 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
Kollisionen:0 Sendewarteschlangenlänge:1000
RX bytes:247786 (241.9 KiB) TX bytes:0 (0.0 b)
Interrupt:10 Basisadresse:0xd000

#iwconfig ra0
ra0 RT61 Wireless ESSID:""
Mode:Ad-Hoc Channel:7 Cell: 22:57:35:BF:0C4
Bit Rate=11 Mb/s
RTS thrff Fragment thrff
Encryption keyff
Link Quality=69/100 Signal level:-70 dBm Noise level:-111 dBm
Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0
Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:0 Missed beacon:0

and my routing table looks like:

#route -n
Kernel IP Routentabelle
Ziel Router Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface U 0 0 0 eth1 U 0 0 0 eth0 U 0 0 0 ra0 U 0 0 0 ppp0

(ppp0 is my dsl-conn., eth1 is connected with the cable modem, eth0 is on the local network and ra0 is a noname-card with the RaLink/RT61-chipset)

can someone figure out qucikly what is wrong or missing?

ps.: other weird things happening are:
- the Ad-hoc mode switches automatically to Managed mode after breaking an established connection.
- i often get crashes when i leave the browser (any) with connected wlan

oh my god

oh my god, it's so obvious. please excuse the long post beforehand.
it's the second time i'm working with route and probably the first time i really understand its function.
the BIG problem was easy to solve: route add [handy-ip] dev ra0

sorry for the spam
