What are the pros and cons of the wireless configuration option option legacy_rates '0' ?
From what I understand, it disables 802.11b rates (such as 1 and 11 Mbps) but doesn't disable 802.11g rates such as 6 Mbps.
Therefore the minimum rate becomes 6 Mbps instead of 1 Mbps, which should help for broadcasts. However I wonder if it can reduce the range or the reliability of my network?
I don't have any 802.11b only device.
Also, does the option have any effect on 5 GHz networks?
