Problems with Power Control with Linksys WPC 11

Sorry to bother others,
I got two questions when I use the hostap_cs to make a wireless test
bed. I want to set up a mobile Ad Hoc network within a lab.
- I used Linksys WPC 11 and Linksys WPC 11 version 3.0 cards in two
I used "iwconfig wlan0 txpower -50" to set power of tranmission to the
minimum value. (I assum -44dBm is the minium one, correct me if I am
wrong.) It seemed that the connection between these two laptops went
down when the distance is around 8 meters. Did anybody do the similar
test before and get smaller distance? This is still too long for me.
- When two machines' connection went down, I moved them closer.
However, they still can't connect to each other. I checked the output of
iwconfig. I was using the same essid and set the same channel. But the
cell ID in one machine was changed automatically when the link went
down. I guess that may be the reason. How can I fix the cell ID?
Thanks a lot!
