rx/tx antenna for fon2100

Recommended Posts

hi all, may be it was mentioned here before i'm not sure, BUT

i noticed very unstable signal strength with fon2100+jasager1.0

wavemon 'link quality' bar was fluctuating 15 - 115

the reason was that the madwifi driver is constantly switching antennas and since fon2100 has got only one, 50% of the time it is 'off'.

the solution are these commands:

sysctl -w dev.wifi0.rxantenna=1

sysctl -w dev.wifi0.txantenna=1

sysctl -w dev.ath.diversity=0

now link quality is much better.

perhaps there are more parameters to tweak, any clues?

would be great to extend the range of these little bastards.
