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.
