All Cisco Aironet clients autoconfig this when they connect to Cisco Aironet
AP/Bridge so no problems at all.
The same clients do not auto configure distance when connecting to other
vendors APs (that also may have 'distance' knob)

I would be especially grateful if someone could tell me the magic numbers to
make clients work in ad-hoc mode at more than approx 20km :-)
