For Freebox, both tests, but ping one was really visible. And I noticed
I got much better network response for browsing and so on since I set
n800 back to default PSM timeout. I'll try to lower default value
progressively to see if I can increase power saving while keeping
network working.

I couldn't extensively test arping on Fonera because it is using its own
subnet (and I only have one Wifi element at home). And I need to
reconfigure some routing to get ping working as expected. I'll report
later about my progress.

Thanks, I'll add your email in the bug report (sorry, it is in french
