This question is about the sensitivity parameter which can be set using
iwconfig man page says that " This is the lowest signal level
for which we attempt a packet reception, signal lower than this are not
received." But it also suggests that the functionalities are hardware
dependent. For example :
With some hardware, this parameter also control the
defer threshold (lowest signal level for which we
consider the channel busy) and the handover thresh
old (lowest signal level where we stay associated
with the current access point).
Does somebody know what exactly do these cards do when the sensitivity is
changed. I could not notice any connectivity diferrence in my adhoc
network when changing sensitivity from 0 to 65535.
