[maemo-developers] [maemo-developers] wlan monitor mode

I've also tested the aireplay suite. The problem, why the tools are not
really running, is that the driver must be patched to be able to send
packets in monitor mode. For i386 environments most common driver projects
like mad-wifi or prism54.org had integrated that feature to their drivers. I
had read into it but had to find out that my C and wifi harware knowledge
isn't enough at the moment for implementing this. Also I havn't found your
module sources for the cx3110x in the repository.

Is it closed source?? Where to find it?

The prism54 team for example had to reverse enginere the protocol between
UMAC(the binary) and LMAC(embedded wifi ARM CPU) by investigating the chip
behaviour.  As I expect that nokia has bought some thousand chips at
conexant I think you will have the firmware and protocol specification and
will be perhaps able to implement it quite easy. It would be a great feature
if  you can do this. I will try to find the driver patches from the prism54
project. Perhaps it isn't that magic to implement it.
