[OLSR-users] Convincing olsr to select better routes

Playing with hysteresis would allow for (hopefully) more stable links if
that is the problem. But remember that that will not actually be a way of
making olsrd prefer routes over the directed interface - it will be more
of a way to make olsrd not accept links on the omni interface.
But it could help you and you should try some different settings. Please
report back if you do :)

BTW: I guess you could also try setting the lower sensibility threshold on
your WLAN interface to a higher value - if possible on your hardware...
