Help on a Simple 802.11 MAC Layer Question


Hello Everyone!

I'm using OpenWRT (linux distro) for research. I would like to do some small mods to the MAC layer. Specifically on the ID/Duration field sent on each packet.

So in order to do this:

1) Do I have to change the src MAC files and re-build OpenWRT (and of course install on the WRT54GL box)? (what files should i need to change?)

2) Can I simply use unix raw sockets to write this field, or is that field finally written by the driver/prebuilt process? Can I write the MAC Duration field with raw sockets?


Best Regards

Hello aztroboy,

I'd recommend that you ask a moderator to move this thread to the Programming forum http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/programming-9/. Your question is far away from a newbiequestion. You may use the "Report"button.
