    v19 v20  
    8686Changing the channel to 8 increased the speed. I've set mode to auto ({{{iwpriv ath0 mode 0}}}). HostAP is running in "G" mode. Turbo mode is enabled. 
    8787 
    88 None of the above solutions work in my case. The most important fact that hasn't been mentioned here at all: Stuck beacons have hardly any influence on IPv4 traffic, but as far as IPv6 is concerned, they are a terrible nuisance. Each stuck beacon means that all router advertisement (and router solicitation) messages on the interface are blocked either for a very long period of time (usually more than one hour), or permanently. However, no errors are reported by radvd. For the IPv6-only LAN I am running, this is a total disaster. Presumably, tricks with background scans and antennas did not help at all.
