Hi Janna,

just in case, note that the examples you gave in the iot-lab wiki were 
written for the iot-lab nodes port for Contiki.
So will not directly apply to RIOT for the macro names.

I understand that you can need both limiting power and increasing the 
threshold when you want to have a lower connectivity with the hardware 
deployment in IoT-LAB.

The "set_rssi_threshold" is currently not implemented in RIOT, but you 
could easily do it yourself (and do a PR maybe :))

The code I wrote in openlab was this one



And it could be adapted by using RIOT at86rf2xx API like:


 From looking in the other at86rfxx drivers datasheets the configuration 
is the same but with different values for RSSI configuration

* at86rf231 page 103 

* at86rf212b page 120 

* at86rf233 page 113 

So the threshold definitions should be enclosed in the header with `#if
