I am using madwifi-old and sample rate algorithm running as AP
configured in bg mode. I have a 11b client associating to the AP.
Seems that AP is sending broadcast data frames to the client at 54mbps
always. So the client is not receiving it.
I wonder how does the rate algorithm know about this condition (that
there are 11b clients associated) and pick a rate that is understood
by 11b clients. I am using a slightly older version of sample code, so
I looked for any bug fixes for sample related to this kind of issue. I
couldn't find any.
Is there really a problem like this with sample algo?
