I have been using madwifi based netgear abg card for
some time now. Previously I have tried to set it to
use the IEEE 802.11 power Save Mode (PSM) but found no
support from the driver.
I am planning to use the card as an AP now and from
what I have read and seen in the user manual, the AP
mode implements PSM. This would allows any STA using
PSM to have it packets buffered at the AP.
But why the paradox, that AP can implement PSM but not
the STA when using the madwifi driver card?
Does anyone know of any open API based card and driver
which would allow me to play with the way PSM is
implemented on STA ? Currently an STA can wake up or
sleep in sync with a beacon only. I want to be able to
allow the STA to sleep and wake up independent of the
beacon. Possible on some combination of driver/card? I
am hoping ath5k in the future would allow such
