Subject:When does Kismet capture packets?
Date:14:35:07 02/07/2010

Hi all,

A few months ago, I posted a question because I was unable to capture retried packets with the same interface I transmit. That was clear for me (https://www.kismetwireless.net/Forum/General/Messages/1262620322.024545). But now I have to argue why, and I would like to know some things in order to explain it:

When are sent packets captured by kismet? I know that all transmitted packets go into the skb and then into the mac80211.

Are the retransmission done into the mac80211? (I use Atheros chipset with ath9k driver).

Thanks in advance for your help.

John
