I am trying to test power management (power save mode) in madwifi driver. I am using madwifi-0.9.3 version.
I set the power save mode using iwconfig ath0 essid linksys power on. I am getting following error message.
Error for wireless request "Set Power Management" (8B2C) :
SET failed on device ath0 ; Operation not supported.
I have gone through the madwifi source code. It seems that the power management flag is not set in driver capability information. So, I doubt that power save feature is not implemented in madwifi driver. Ticket#447 from http://madwifi.org/ticket/447 also conveys the same.
Is this feature not implemented in madwifi driver till now? Is there any other way to enable power save mode in madwifi? Please help me to solve this problem.
thanks in advance,
