Multicast throughput limited

Hi  Guillaume,

I've seen the same thing with a PrismII card running in hostAP mode (not 
using hostap code). I'm fairly sure that this is related to the card 
firmware, as it appears that broadcast and multicast traffic are delayed 
until the next beacon frame. The AP firmware has the ability to overcome 
this limitation but the standard Station firmware does not.

If you try decreasing the period between frames, does the throughput 

Hope this helps
