struct_ieee80211_conf - configuration of the device
2. SYNOPSIS ▲
intmax_sleep_period; u16 listen_interval; u8 ps_dtim_period; u8 long_frame_max_tx_count; u8 short_frame_max_tx_count;
structcfg80211_chan_def chandef; bool radar_enabled;
3. MEMBERS ▲
configuration flags defined above
requested transmit power (in dBm), backward compatibility value only that is set to the minimum of all interfaces
The dynamic powersave timeout (in ms), see the powersave documentation below. This variable is valid only when the CONF_PS flag is set.
the maximum number of beacon intervals to sleep for before checking the beacon for a TIM bit (managed mode only); this value will be only achievable between DTIM frames, the hardware needs to check for the multicast traffic bit in DTIM beacons. This variable is valid only when the CONF_PS flag is set.
listen interval in units of beacon interval
The DTIM period of the AP weAqre connected to, for use in power saving. Power saving will not be enabled until a beacon has been received and the DTIM period is known.
Maximum number of transmissions for a « long » frame (a frame not RTS protected), called « dot11LongRetryLimit » in 802.11, but actually means the number of transmissions not the number of retries
Maximum number of transmissions for a « short » frame, called « dot11ShortRetryLimit » in 802.11, but actually means the number of transmissions not the number of retries
the channel definition to tune to
whether radar detection is enabled
spatial multiplexing powersave mode; note that IEEE80211_SMPS_STATIC is used when the device is not configured for an HT channel. Note that this is only valid if channel contexts are not used, otherwise each channel context has the number of chains listed.
