Please explain why you think this is a bug. I've seen several situations where all clients actually used the same rate.

This is a bug as all rates are 36mb. No 54mb no 48mb or less. Even on p2p the rate is always 36mbps. We tested with other access point(wili) also on that we got different of associated stations.

Again, I have seen situations where this happened "naturally". But still: can you please give details on how the situation you describe can be reproduced?

In short connectivity rate is not shown in wlanconfig command. If you cat to proc/net/madwifi/ath0/rate_info in continous mode (while true; do...). I can see the radio flapping to different rates but in wlanconfig ath0 list there are no changes its always 36mbps on G and 11mbps on b.
