Hello all,

I’m trying to access the ratestats_* files but they are all blank.

I cannot reproduce the problem.  I get non-empty files as soon as I bring the interface up and any connection is established.  The easiest way to check would be to use WDS, when no other hardware is needed to create a "connection":

[root@mj ~]# rmmod ath_pci
[root@mj ~]# modprobe ath_pci autocreate=wds
[root@mj ~]# iwconfig ath1 channel 6
[root@mj ~]# ifconfig ath1 up
[root@mj ~]# cat /proc/net/madwifi/ath1/ratestats_*
rate    tt      perfect failed  pkts    avg_tries       last_tx
  1.0  13686   13686    0           0  1.00            -

Is there any parameter i have to change to have this satistics?

I'm not aware of any such parameters.  I don't see any need to disable data by default and require a special parameter to enable it.

Does anybody knows a good way understand this behavior? (It could be my
board, but i really need to check the code for more info)

Since the problem is on your side, the standard suggestion is that you provide more information for others to see what you might be misinterpreting or doing wrong.
