Its a repost from here : StackOverflow,
I am struggling to find a some tool through which I can transmit the Data through a Wireless Driver which gives me the flexibility to set for instance the DataRate, the PacketSize of the PSDU.
Here is a brief overview of my setup:
- A laptop running Ubuntu is used as a Transmitter ( IEEE 802.11b)
- A Dedicated Hardware which is a receiver.
I would like to use some tool ( or scripts) in the Transmitter to transmit Data and verify whether my Hardware is working properly.
So, basically, I should be having the flexibility to assign the Data Rate ( for example 1,2,5.5 or 11Mbps), set the PacketSize, Transmit Frequency etc.
Basically, I can check all these, through iwconfig, tcpdump, wireshark etc.
So, the problem is I am not able to find what wlan standard is currently being used in the wireless driver so that I can tweak around with the settings.
Just to make it clear, I am not looking for any readymade scripts or something. I am looking for some direction as to how to proceed.
