That was more of a rhetorical question- kind of jerky really. :) I was running a number of flent tests on this hardware with two well connected clients showing how the new ath9k driver improves latencies in that case rather dramatically. I’m not familiar yet with the point at which contention becomes more of a problem, but I hope to find out…
