Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 448739
ath5k rate setting is wonky
Last modified: 2008-06-30 21:50:22 EDT
Description of problem:
The ath5k driver, though most awesome, has a funky way of setting the rate of
the card. When set to auto, it will drop the connection rate to 1MB every second
or so. When the rate is manually set with iwconfig, the connection is dropped
after about 10 seconds.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start large transfer
2. Set rate with iwconfing (iwconfig wlan0 rate 11M)
3. Observe the connection fail
Either the rate is set to 1M every second or so, or, if the rate is manually
set, the connection drops.
Free, fast and easy wireless (almost there!).
dmesg reports this: "ath5k phy0: noise floor calibration timeout" every minute
what kernel release is this on Brian?
Thanks for the quick response.
Is this still happening with -55.fc9?

I'm not having this problem with -55 any longer. I can set the rate to 11MB with
iwconfig and it works without timing out.
