[Olsr-dev] [Olsr-users] Question: is possible to use mixed LinkQualityAlgorithm among nodes ?
Wed Jan 2 13:28:29 CET 2013
I wanted to give feedback about this.
We are happy now using etx_float on those nodes where a strong (0.3)
LinkQualityMult is applied. Links do not flap anymore. We are also
using the LinkQualityAging at 0.02.
thanks for support.
