Higher Fixed Transmission Rates Don't Work in 802.11a Monitor Mode

Reported by: anonymous Assigned to:
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: madwifi: HAL Version: v0.9.2
Keywords: monitor, fixed rate, HAL, 802.11a Cc:
Patch is attached: 0 Pending:


An ath0 is created with wlanmode monitor. Issuing "iwconfig ath0 rate 54M fixed" causes sample.c to crash (kernel BUG at sample.c:837!). Upon investigation, the call ath_hal_getratetable doesn't retrieve the higher bit rates, it returns rates 2, 4, 11 and 22, not 108.

Rates returned seem to be for 11b, not 11a even when reported so by iwconfig.
