I want to look at my channel from my mac for an amount of time X and measure the idle time Y, so I can use the ratio Y/X to do some maths... Do you guys know an easy way of doing this in a madwifi router? I have full ssh access.

I tried looking at the /sys/bus/pci/drivers/ath_pci/0000:00:11.0/net:ath0/statistics , but even though I was seeing other networks at the same channel I was - with iwlist ath0 scan - I was at 0 in all rx statistics... Perhaps I need to make the interface transparent in some way.
