How can I set bitrate at startup of hostapd?
If I set after running hostap with
iwconfig ath0 bit 6M
iwlist ath0 bit tells me
Current Bit Rate=6 Mb/s
iwconfig ath0 tells me
Bit Rate=6 Mb/s
but client wpa_supplicant has rate 48Mb
If I set 48M for example of client and server
ping doesn't work. I have a signal of -42dbm.
If rate is auto the bitrate of client is 18Mb
I have no noise (-95) and signal of -42.
Why does the rate not go higher that 18M?
Power issues of madwifi, ok let it be ... nothing changes if 6Mb set or
54Mb set ...
