enabled RTS/CTS on madwifi doesn't work for all data frame transmission?

Description

Hi

I am trying to test the RTS/CTS handshakes on madwifi-0.9.4. I enable it with iwconfig command with "iwconfig wlan0 rts 1" which should does a RTS/CTS handshake on per-packet basis, but when I monitor the traffic, I only see the RTS/CTS occasionally and not per every data sent packet as it's mentioned in the standard... is there any reason for it?

Naeem,

I guess you have better chances to get an answer on that question if you send it to the madwifi-devel mailing list. In addition, you may want to check if this behaviour also occurs in trunk - v0.9.4 is stone-age and may contain bugs that have been fixed in trunk.
