#8917 closed defect (worksforme)

Long distance links on 802.11a fail with atheros

Reported by: mark@… Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: packages Version: Backfire 10.03.1 RC3
Keywords: distance deauth Cc:


I have a situation where a link work when the two stations are close (<10 m) from each other and fails when they are 2500 m apart. When they are close together I'm using dipole antennae, when they are further apart grids. I have plenty of signal with the grids. The link connects and disconnects "due to local deauth request" approximately every 3 seconds.
I assume that this it a timing problem but setting the distance option has no noticeable effect.
The problem occurs with both the madwifi and ath5k drivers, on all versions of Backfire from 10.03 to 10.03.1 rc3.
