Does anybody use webgear/raylink (ray) with access point?
I'm rewriting awi driver (another wireless card) and I found
the macro definition in net/if_ieee80211.h is not accurate.
#define IEEE80211_FC1_RCVFROM_MASK 0x03
#define IEEE80211_FC1_RCVFROM_TERMINAL 0x00
#define IEEE80211_FC1_RCVFROM_AP 0x01
#define IEEE80211_FC1_RCVFROM_AP2AP 0x02
802.11 spec defines these bits as follows:
0x00 (ToDS=0, FromDS=0) from station to station (adhoc mode)
0x01 (ToDS=1, FromDS=0) from station to access point
0x02 (ToDS=0, FromDS=1) from access point to station
0x03 (ToDS=1, FromDS=1) from access point to access point
Though I'd like to change the macro definitions to adopt spec,
I cannot understand the usage of this macro in ray driver.
It seems to that if_ray driver discards received packets with
value 0x02 (ToDS=0, FromDS=1 or currently defines as RCVFROM_AP2AP),
which indicates from access point.
Is it just a bug and no one can use ray driver with access point,
or is there any tricks I cannot found?
