I 'm having an issue with the iwspy command. I'm using madwifi-ng,
revision 1629. I have 2 nodes, setup in ad-hoc mode. While spying from
one node (A) to the other (B), correct values (signal level and quality
are shown). However, when node B suddenly goes down, iwspy on node A
still returns old values. Iwspy does not indicate the node failure. I
still receive update status IW_QUAL_ALL_UPDATED. After a while, the
update status changes into IW_QUAL_ALL_INVALID. But the responsiveness
is very slow. By decreasing inactivity time (iwpriv inact), things get a
little bit better. Would it be possible to return signal level/quality 0
when there is node failure? Or is there another solution?
Thanks in advance,

Please file a ticket for this issue. I too noticed it several weeks ago
and it is on my private todo list of bugs to fix, but I haven't got
around to filing a ticket yet.
