Hi Rafael. Don't use a random number to list the BT's contents, the BT is a
table that grows from index 0 and up. So the first entry in an empty BT
will be placed at 0 and seen by:
# iwpriv msh0 bt_list 0
The first time you see a NULL enty is an indication that this entry and
higher are empty. Typically you just loop through the table (starting at 0)
and check each entry until you hit the first NULL one, and it's the same for
The bt_add syntax is correct, a typical line may look like:
# iwpriv msh0 bt_add 00:17:C4:00:CB:3C
That is, the MAC address needs to be formatted as above.
