This file contains a log of unanswered questions raised during development
and testing. I just log them here for future reference since these questions
are usually generated while I'm working on something else and can't afford
to stop.

Conditions:
Aironet AP, "Configuration/Radio/I80211/Extend=on".
Extend means "proprietary extensions"
Observation:
Probe response frames were received with a properly formatted information
element using a reserved Element ID (namely 0x85). The data length
of the element was 28 bytes. Turning "Extend" off removed that item
from the probe responses. What is this item, what does it do? The
presence of this item is confusing the prism1 driver a little (non-fatal
error) and confusing wlandump alot. Requires a fix.

Conditions:
prism2 sta w/ txrates set to all (0x0f), all other settings at default.
Aironet AP set w/ 1_11 supported rates and 1_11 basic rates.
Observation:
Extremely poor tx/rx (particularly rx) and _lots_ of disassociations
initiated by the AP. Changed AP basic rates to 1_2 and the problem goes
away.
Guesses:
prism2 mac can't handle 5.5&11 as basic rates?
aironet was using short preamble?
Answer:
