wilink 7 / wl1273 promiscuous & monitor (rfmon) mode
Finding it very hard to locate any detailed information on the capabilities of the wilink 7 device and was wondering if anyone out there can help.
Basically, i looking to see if the wilink7 /wl1273 can support promoscuous and monitor (rfmon) modes of operation under Linux or Android.
Would really appreciate any suggestion or guidance to information on this subject.
What version of wlan driver are you using - M6/MCP (TI proprietary) or the native linux (NLCP) ?
I'm only investigating what approach to take at the moment, will be Linux OMAP / DM3730. I have no idea what is possible with the TI precompiled drivers as i cant find any detailed documentation or source code.
TI directly don't support promoscuous mode. You can approach external design house (such as ourselves) to implement this feature in the FW.
