As far as I get, mode and media parameters allow us to define
maximum possible rates. What I want to know (and perhaps change)
is the actual active Tx rate.
What should I understand from the output below?
# wiconfig ath0 | grep -i rate
TX rate (selection): [ 54 ]
TX rate (actual speed): [ 1 ]
And, since wiconfig seems to work to get card's status, why can't
I set some of its parameters?
# wiconfig ath0 -A 2
wiconfig: SIOCSWAVELAN: Invalid argument
And, by the way, shouldn't wiconfig be renamed or superseded by
wlanctl or some other tool?
