Problems with antenna diversity

Reported by: Assigned to:
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: madwifi: driver Version: v0.9.4
Keywords: antenna diversity Cc:
Patch is attached: 0 Pending: 0


I am trying to benchmark a wireless network for academic purpose.

I have an Ap, Monitor, Sender and Receiver, all using madwifi with atheros chips.

I need to check the SSI Signal, but i have a weird result . The first package has a good strength in the signal but the second has not. The SSI SIgnal Intercalate from good to bad in all the reception of the packages. I disbled de "Diversity" and I set the antennas with this guide -> AntennaDiversity?.

I am using UDP to transfer the information with iperf, and I filtered a result with WireShark? to show it to you.
