Can we set listen interval using iw command in managed mode before connecting to an AP?
I can see that it can be set using iwconfig but I presume WEXT interface is deprecated.
I can also see the attribute : NL80211_ATTR_STA_LISTEN_INTERVAL
Which can be set over netlink interface, but I am not sure if there is any iw option to set the listen interval.
Can somebody pls help?
