yes, but i can't set probe response timeout, because it is decided by the 
firmware. i measured more accurately that this timeout is 28 ms when no ap 
replies, and 70 when at least one sends a probe response. however, it is not 
too bad.
but because i want to improve performance, do you think that upgrading the 
firmware (or driver) could help me?
i'm using 1.3.6 firmware and 0.1.3 HostAP driver on my Senao 2511 Plus
if yes, how can i flash it?
