> @haukepetersen @miri64 You should be able to answer these questions ;)

I don't know much about this device driver, except how it interacts with the `netdev` API ;-), but I can try to answer it with my limited knowledge:

> 1. Why is it not possible to choose the default RX_MODE (without AACK enabled)?

I could name you some villages in Bohemia, if you like ;-).

> 2. In at86rf2xx_netdev.c:_set(NETOPT_AUTOACK) the comment says /* don't set res to set netdev_ieee802154_t::flags */. However netdev_ieee802154_set never handles this cases which causes ifconfig <n> set -autoack to fail with an error message. What was the idea behind it?

Why would `netdev_ieee802154_set` handle that case? As far as I know auto-ack is pretty device specific, so this should be done in `at86rf2xx_netdev.c:_set()`.
