Description

Hi All,

i have noticed that in madwifi(0.9.3) ,a station operating in the G mode as an AP,doesnt use rts cts mechanism when enabled at user space.Instead it ALWAYS uses cts-to-self as default if there are b clients associated with the Ap. Are my observations correct and is this according to IEEE standards?

Thanks, SRITEJ.

I have observed the same issue,when i use the rts/cts function ,No matter how big the packet it send, i couldn't get the rts/cts packet with test machine, could anybody know how to let the rts/cts function work?
