[patch] WME autoconf

Reported by: Massimo Vellucci <m.vellucci@unicampus.it> Assigned to:
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: madwifi: driver Version: v0.9.2.1
Keywords: WME autoconfiguration Cc: vollero@ieee.org
Patch is attached: 1 Pending:

Description

The patch changes the driver behavior when the Access Point (AP) is congested. When the BSS is congested, the original driver automatically modifies EDCA parameters (basically to increase the priority of flows coming from the AP). The patch modifies this behavior allowing the user to enable (default) or disable this feature.

The patch modifies the following files:

ath/if_ath.c
net80211/ieee80211.h
net80211/ieee80211_ioctl.h
net80211/ieee80211_node.h
net80211/ieee80211_proto.c
net80211/ieee80211_var.h
net80211/ieee80211_wireless.c

Once installed, you can issue the following command to enable/disable the autoconfiguration of parameters:

iwpriv <interface> autoconf 1|0

The default is 1 (autoconf enabled). To obtain the autoconfiguration status (enabled or disabled), you can issue the following command:

iwpriv <interface> get_autoconf

I hope this patch can be useful for the project,
Regards,
Massimo
