from what i've seen, the sniffing happens because the chipset is put in a very special test state, trough a CMDCODE_TEST to the command register. In this mode, the chipset will only receive packets and stop transmiting; this means that pings and the AP function are stopped.
(please correct me if i'm wrong)
I find that there are 2 sniff programs provided by the HostAP package. But is it possible to run AP and sniffer simultaneously in one machine using only one wireless LAN card??
What I want to get is the raw 802.11 frame received by the AP while the AP is still working.
Is there any solution??
Thank you very much.
