WME classification error in ad-hoc (IBSS) mode

Reported by: Assigned to:
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: madwifi: 802.11 stack Version: v0.9.4
Keywords: Cc:
Patch is attached: 0 Pending:


In ad-hoc mode the “ieee80211_classify” function is not called. This function (ieee80211_output.c file) determines the priority of the packet an select the WME queue to manage the packet. In managed mode the function is called and WME queue are used. I have checked it with a radio sniffer

WME queue are available in ad-hoc ?

We used madwifi 0.9.4 and a Mandriva 2008 with a kernel and two stations (Cisco Aironet PCI interface or Trend PCI interface).

Patch for WME queue in ad-hoc

11/17/09 10:51:19 changed by Ronald van Wee <>

I was setting up WME queue in wireless ad-hoc envirement. In the beginning it dit not seems to worked. Looking on the internet i found a driver from UMASS at htp:// I took the code for QOS from tis source code and put this in my original driver 0.9.4 After testing WME queue in wireless ad-hoc whit the patched driver it works as expected.
