I see. Since it is not supported by ap-utils, my next question doesn't 
really belong here, still, i'm asking it, maybe someone can tell me 
where to find the answer.


The DWL-AP1000+ I'm using is the only wireless ap on the lan. It has 
some leds for indicating network traffic. But even if there's nothing 
really going on on the network, the leds are blinking a few times in 
every seconds. I found that the AP is broadcasting UDP packets on the 
network to all hosts to port number 2313. This port is used by the IAPP 
(Inter Access Point Protocol). I guess that the AP is searching for 
other AP's on the network to cooperate with. But it won't find any, 
since there aren't any. Only this one. So I think brodcasting packets to 
all hosts on the network is pointless. It's not really a big problem to 
me, I'm just curious if there is any way to tell the AP to stop sending 
those packets?

iptraf says in every second:

UDP (76 bytes) from to on eth0

Where is the ip adress of the AP.
