Hello.. I am doing research on mobile adhoc networks and was wondering if
anyone could point me towards good information on the aironet 340 series
cards.. What I am looking for is a 802.11 compliant card that has data
rates up to 11 mbs. At my lab we have been using the Lucent Techonologies
cards but I have recently heard that they exclude the RTS/CTS mechanism in
adhoc mode. I have heard good things about the aironet cards and was
wondering a few things --
does it do the RTS/CTS in adhoc mode?
can you adjust transmission power?
are there linux drivers available?
if so, from where?
is it possible to get signal strength measurements?
is so, does the driver support the same interface as
the lucent cards -- iwconfig, iwspy etc...
If someone knows the answers to these questions or could point me to some
useful info that would help me out a lot..
