you have to be careful if playing with MCS configurations - as there are mandatory
requirements - we found that disabling the lowest rate (in an attempt to ensure all
clients got a reasonable speed if they could associate) would crash any Mac OSX device
(divide by zero error in the driver..nice!)...i think Apple fixed that.... however,
our kit shouldnt have allowed us to disable that rate, the RFC clearly states that
the rate is mandatory 8-)
