Regards tothe zd1211 list. I am trying to develop a semi-managed ad-hoc net
with zd1211 nodes. When I "iwconfig wlan0 essid name", the driver scans
through the frequencies, and if not finding it, returns to the last channel
set when there was no essid specified. I would like to have one node in my
network that does not do the channel-scan regardless of settng the essid.
Kind of like a "master" node. The issue is that if one of the "client"
nodes is powered first, it will generally go to channel 1 after not finding
the essid, and a server node then will hunt to channel 1, even if the
network expects to be on a different channel. Also I am curious about
ad-hoc bandwidth. It seems that my ad-hoc networks can only carry about 1/4
or 1/8 of the traffic as the same h/w in infrastructure mode. Does setting
RTS/CTS or FRAG help with this? Thanks for any help! - Brian
