Ad-Hoc mode: throttling down to 11b
I was testing AP vs. Ad-Hoc mode, exact same interface & antennas, and I noticed that Ad-Hoc connections from my laptops are getting throttled down to "B" 11mbps consistantly; however, connections while in AP/hostap mode from the same laptops are "G" 54mbps. Note, I am changing nothing on the gui other than AP/Ad-Hoc mode drop down box. The only unusual setting I have is odfm=cts/rts. Any insights are appreciated.
Thank you, -Pete
many wireless cards follow the ad hoc standaard
this is only 11b comunication on ad hoc connections
I see. When a laptop that is only capable of 11b in ad-hoc connects, does it also cause all other ad-hoc 11g 54mbps connections to be throttled down to 11b? Even with odfm=cts/rts? I have the 11g only checkbox enabled in the pfSense GUI but it still let the laptop connect, presumably because it is technically capable of 11g in AP Client mode.
