[Server-devel] [XSCE] XO-1 wireless tests

I have no idea what the XO does, only observations.  I speculate that when 
an XO connects to an AP, it stops connecting to the mesh.

My observation is that when the AP is on a different channel than the mesh 
the XO is much more likely to find it and connect to it, especially with an 
unpatched libertas driver.

Does the mesh get disabled or moved when you connect to an AP on a
different channel?  The XO's only have a single radio so can only
communicate efficiently on a single channel at a time.  If we are
trying to keep the mesh active on one channel and connect to an AP on
another that is certainly going to cause problems.
