How to load amsdu_size=3 with the iwlwifi module

by ILI   Last Updated August 14, 2018 15:02 PM

I have a Intel Dual Band Wireless AC 7265 WLAN and need to use it for monitoring.

To enable monitoring, amsdu_size=3 needs to be loaded with the iwlwifi module

What command should I run to do this?

How do I know when the module has successfully loaded with this feature?

The way to load the parameter is by first unloading the driver:

sudo modprobe -r iwlwifi

And then loading it with the required parameter:

sudo modprobe iwlwifi amsdu_size=3

As far as I know, the only way to confirm it is:

cat /sys/module/iwlwifi/parameters/amsdu_size

If the module loaded, the result should be 3.
