wl noise is always "-24"

    I'm running 111005 on three WRTs and regardless what I do, "wl noise" always reports -24. That almost always means that I have a negative SNR... something's wrong, but what?

    and here's another oddity...

    Three WRTs, hooked together via WDS. Fourth one is a client bridge. wl wds reports the MAC addresses of the APs that are part of the WDS. It lists the ones that are configured, no the ones that are actually connected. If I take the MAC addresses I get from that and do a wl rssi on those MAC addresses, I get a response, regardless on whether the AP is still on or not.

    Said another way, when all three are running, I get what looks like reasonable readings for the rssi. If I turn one off, the othe two still give me rssi readings for that AP (unchanging, so I guess it's from the last time the AP was actually active), even though it is, err, off now.
