Dynamic ACK Timeout

Reported by: anonymous Assigned to:

Patch is attached: 0 Pending:


The router will determine ack-timeout setting automatically by sending periodically packets with a different ack-timeout. Ack-timeout values by which ACK frame was received are saved and used later to determine the real ack-timeout.

My 2 cents: this should be performed by a user-space tool, not by the driver. One needs to make sure that all members of the same network get "pinged", and that they are all updated to the same value once it changes. That's not a trivial job.
