I am almost out of range, but the link quality seems good enough for a
slow connection, interactive ssh is fine, and when it's working, I see
large packet ping losses < 1%, so I would *think* layer 2 retries
would be enough to keep me from getting disassociated.

But the only way to know is poke around in the driver.
