    227227While this may be somewhat difficult to follow, it essentially means one might resolve one's SBP by using the {{{madwifi-hal-testing branch}}} or implementing the suggested {{{work around}}} in the standard madwifi branch.  I'll try the former first (since it will be easier) and report my results shortly.

    229 And, as feedback, the "{{{Solution for Debian Lenny (linux-image-2.6.26-1)}}}" suggestion above did not resolve my SBP with Voyage Linux 0.6.1 (based on Debian Lenny) with a Ubiquiti SuperRange2 (SR2) Wi-Fi card on a RouterBOARD 14, four port miniPCI to PCI card, connected to a RouterBOARD 71, PCI riser card, on a revision 2 RouterBOARD 230 (RB230) embedded system mainboard (full hardware details given in case they end up mattering).  And none of the configuration tweaks suggested above helped either. :-(

     239In the last 3+ years we've used various versions of madwifi (currently 9.3.3) in dozens of 5.8 Ghz multi-node installations. We've never come across the SB problem until our most recent installation which is running on 900Mhz using Ubiquiti SR9's in what turns out to be a very high-noise environment (indicated noise floor around -75). We were able to eliminate it there, by increasing the beacon interval to 300 msec from the default of 100 msecs (iwpriv wlan0 bintval 300). However with the high noise floor, and packet loss approaching 95%, we still don't have an operating system, but that's another story. We will try to address that problem by upgrading to XR9's.
