iwconfig athx channel

I use a Atheros chip (Fonera) with a VAP_STA and and VAP_AP which realize a simple client-repeater. I know that using only one RF module it's impossible obtaining two different working channels: one for STA and the other for AP but... issuing iwconfig athx channel n at the and of the configuration (n is different than STA channel m) performance improves. Naturally, iwconfig shows the two VAPs on the same channel m.

There is a reason for that?

More input please. How do you determine the performance improvement? What does the improvement actually look like? What version of MadWifi?
