Is there a way to increase the scanning sensitivity with the Atheros  

I have an Apple computer and that machine came with Windows and both  
are able to scan about 3 to 10 APs per active scan.  Specialized  
applications are able to pick-up about 30 beacons.

For a long time I though that the adapter was only able to scan the  
most powerful AP in range, the one on the floor above, until I set my  
Apple machine to act as a WEP AP and I was able to pick it up along  
the other network.

Right now it's using the default settings, I played around with the  
roaming settings, alas to no avail.
