I have the same problem, it seems that the 'prism2_param wlan0
other_ap_policy 2' is not work. Are there some points we were not think of?
linux kernel 2.4.3
hostap driver 2002-05-19
at last, I fixed the rate at 11Mbps in the driver directly, and recompiled,
then I got about 4.7Mbps throughput under two-nodes WDS.
How can I get "auto rate" under WDS?
