Hi,

Could you please give some clarifications on the setting of the listen_interval (wiced_wifi_set_listen_interval and wiced_wifi_set_listen_interval_assoc) ?

The documentation states that the first function should communicates the listen_interval to the AP. This seems to be true, but only during the association. If I change the listen_interval after that, the function does not communicate the new value to the connected AP, even though the change is effective.

Why is that ? Is there a problem with updating the listen_interval while connected ? How can I let the AP knows that I want to change / changed the listen_interval without disconnecting ?

Thanks for your support.

Best regards,
Mehdi

Hi @mmch ,

You can change the listen interval only before association. 

You cannot change the listen interval without disassociating.

Thanks,

Hi @mmch ,

You can change the listen interval only before association because the listen interval value will be set in association frame. So you can set the listen interval using wiced_wifi_set_listen_interval before association happens.
