Description Adrian Chadd freebsd_committer 2011-05-22 02:40:10 UTC
When testing out FreeBSD-HEAD as STA and AP using atheros cards (AR9160 based at least, others haven't yet been tested), the number of received beacon frames is much less than 10 per second.

When the station is not under a lot of traffic, the number of beacon frames received is the correct level (10/sec.)

Statistics on the hostap indicate 10 beacons per second are being queued to the hardware and the beacon queue is empty, indicating the MAC processed the beacons, but it's unclear at the moment whether the beacons are making it out on the air.
