This was using a Samsung NC10 netbook with wireless details:

lspci gives for the wireless:

02:00.0 Ethernet controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR5001
Wireless Network Adapter (rev 01)

[root@samsung2 ~]# lsmod|grep ath
ath5k                 143403  0
mac80211              188716  1 ath5k
ath                     7145  1 ath5k
cfg80211              110951  3 ath5k,mac80211,ath

I have now tried a test with a different laptop running the following wireless:
03:03.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 2200BG
[Calexico2] Network Connection (rev 05)

[root@lapmike2 ~]# lsmod|grep ipw
ipw2200               116546  0
libipw                 21037  1 ipw2200
cfg80211              110951  2 ipw2200,libipw
lib80211                4107  3 lib80211_crypt_ccmp,ipw2200,libipw

This wireless card in this second laptop does seem to have a driver
that is allowed to change the sensitivity!  I guess for the first test
I did the sens value can't be changed so I will run the tests with the
second laptop instead.
