Master mode is the default, yes. But I'll try it explicitly too. FWIW, I've tried switching to Ad-Hoc mode as well, messing with different power settings, different channels... no dice either. The behavior I see (no signals at all) makes me think there's a driver issue with the card not properly starting up or something like that. That's why I'm here. The green and yellow lights on the card blink...
