A particular device can be set to be in “managed”, “ad-hoc”, or “master” mode.
If your device uses a mac80211-based driver, then you can use utility iw to
create a virtual interface of type ibss. You can see the setup at http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Documentation/iw/vif/. You will not be able
to do this with YaST, or with any connection editor.
