Have you tried this update? (I have tried this hal with linux and
madwifi-ng, and works fine. Version is 0.9.16.13, so it is newer, then
the one in the madwifi-ng svn. With the 0.9.16.3+wrap+CM9, the ack rssi
is much lower on long distance links (4-10 km), than with 0.9.16.13
(+10), the recieve rssi is the same.)
