[Olsr-users] ignore whether interface is wireless

OK, tcpdump is my new friend.

I was dumping at the AP and it all seemed OK.  It was only when I looked at
what was happening at the client that I saw what was going on.


AP: OLSR on.

Client: OLSR off.  This is simply so that tcpdump will only be showing what
comes in to it.  With OLSR running the tcpdump is showing periodic sends,
BUT, and this is the kicker, there is NO traffic from the AP.

When the AP is ath9k the client receives OLSR traffic from the AP.  When
the AP is the qcp driver the client receives nothing from the AP.  So the
problem is identified and now all I have to do is figure out why the qcp
driver does not send OLSR messasges.

Thanks for the advice.  It is much appreciated.
