Agreed, my tests with detuned AM broadcast radios close to the left-hand

I suspect that it does. I'm interested to know the real answer.
I just did a half hour test in mesh mode, with access point off, using
http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Mesh_Network_Details#Usage and found at least
four distinct levels detected in this way, depending on the distance
between two units, with one unit doing a "ping -f" of the other. The
thresholds between each level seemed to be logarithmic by distance ...
in that there were more thresholds the closer the units got to each
In http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Wireless_Driver_README there are no obvious
signal to noise measurements for mesh mode. Each SNR measurement
specifically says it is for infrastructure.
