imperfect wi fi signal detection

Reported by: Assigned to:

Patch is attached: 0 Pending: 0


Hardware: Acer Aspire One SO: Ubuntu 8.04.1

Madwifi version: madwifi-hal-

lspci output:

03:00.0 Ethernet controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR242x 802.11abg Wireless PCI Express Adapter (rev 01)

Bad detection of wi fi signal (permanently below 20%, instable connection, navigation is impossible). Acer Aspire One uses natively Linpus with his own drivers, wich have a perfect signal detection. Near the access point the signal detection is optimal (>90%). The problem came when the distance reaches about 8-9m (with Linpus, instead, there was no problems).
