I would like to know how to select the rate control algorithm for
If I run "iwconfig ath0 rate auto", what rate control algorithm will
be used (sample, minstrel, or onoe) ? Is there a way for me to
select these algorithms?

The rate control algorithm is selected when the module is loaded. Run
"modinfo ath_pci" to see the available algorithms. For instance, to use
the minstrel algorithm run
modprobe ath_pci ratectl=minstrel
Of course, that would work only if ath_pci is not already loaded. It's
also possible to specify module options in one of the files
in /etc/modprobe.d/ by adding this line:
options ath_pci ratectl=minstrel
If you are using an embedded system with the AHB interface, replace
ath_pci with ath_ahb.
