Trying to use this Mediatek USB device and I notice a - quite nasty - problem using IBSS
mode. On startup of the IBSS network, there is a chance the Pi goes into a tizzy
- when it's the first (and only) node.
I was able to dupe it consistently in my home - fairly static network - but not anymore
in a lab environment. I cannot easily go back home - it's ~3000km from where I am at
Does anyone have experience with these MediaTek devices and B.A.T.M.A.N. on lower
performance nodes like a Raspberry Pi...
It doesn't seem to me like this is batman-adv or batmand related. So I would
most likely better to ask on linux-wireless(a)vger.kernel.org too
And is IBSS mode really required or would meshpoint with mesh_fwding set 0
iw phy0 interface add mesh0 type mp
ip link set up dev mesh0
iw dev mesh0 mesh join 11s-bat freq 2412 HT20 mcast-rate 18 beacon-interval 1000
iw dev mesh0 set mesh_param mesh_fwding 0
# please make sure that it is actually 0 with: iw dev mesh0 get mesh_param
ip link set master bat0 dev mesh0
I have ascertained that NONE of the USB Realtek dongles work, as the
kernel driver is missing IBSS support at this time...
I'm against an urgent deadline, and trying to understand what I can do to make this
