You can use 'iwconfig wlan0 retry 0' to remove retransmissions. I have
never tested this in monitor mode, so I do not know whether it does
exactly what is expected.. Anyway, the monitor mode is a testing mode
that disables many standard operations, so I wouldn't be that surprised
if there are some problems transmitting packets while in monitor mode.
