Setting best of for mini PCI atheros CM9



  • Hi, I have got  question  ,  what  is  your  best of setting for atheros CM9 if you  use wifi  at 802.11g ?
    Thanks all

    ev.ath.0.txantenna:?
    dev.ath.0.rxantenna:?
    dev.ath.0.diversity:?
    dev.ath.0.tpscale:?
    dev.ath.0.tpc:?
    dev.ath.0.tpack:?
    dev.ath.0.tpcts:?
    settings  etc.



  • You have to (at least) set diversity=0 and txantenna and rxantenna to 1 or 2 (depends on which connector you have attached the pigtail).
    For the others settings i thing the following are well.

    tpscale=1
    tpc=0
    tpack=99
    tpcts=99

    If you have a long range point to point link (switch to 802.11b or 802.11a then) the most important values are acktimeout, ctstimeout and slottime. They depend on the distance between the two points.
