#15445 closed enhancement (not_a_bug)

Wi-Fi Distance value of 0

I have tested distance of 0 meters and wireless behaves as this option isn't configured (driver default).
For debugging/troubleshooting purposes, I suggest that when the value of 0 is set, that L2 layer discards Ack use on unicast traffic(for example: QoS Control field bit 5 from 0 to 1).

No, I think overloading this parameter with something else is a Very Bad Idea [tm]

Simply disabling ACK for unicast traffic essentially also disables rate control, which is also Very Bad.

The distance value refers to the range added to the default coverage.
