Does not work..;)

That is the one of the first things I tried...

I also tried "prism2_param wlan0 txratectrl 1" to see if the FW and
combination of "iwconfig wlan0 rate 11M fixed" would do it...and no such

Note: wlan0 is in repeater/wds mode and now when using the latest hostap
driver as of yesterday...I can see that 11Mbps does work now as I noted in
previous email....but rate adjusts periodically (I assume due to packet

Is there a place in the driver code that I could lock speeds (hardcode) when
in WDS mode?
