Hi guys,

I wondered if it could be possible, with HostAp and an adequate combination of primary/secondary to substitute another access method to the current MAC CSMA/CA method.
Why ? To avoid typically problem of hidden node that will ruin all attempt to make a WLAN hotspot with a few customers a correct point of presence with BW equally distributed among users.

Be careful, for obvious compatibility reasons, the system SHOULD NOT need any change to software on the station side (as Frottle or WICCP need it). As Infinet routers do.
