CONFIG_IPW2200_PROMISCUOUS: Enable creation of a RF radiotap promiscuous interface

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_IPW2200_PROMISCUOUS has multiple definitions:

Enable creation of a RF radiotap promiscuous interface found in drivers/net/wireless/Kconfig

The configuration item CONFIG_IPW2200_PROMISCUOUS:

Help text

Enables the creation of a second interface prefixed 'rtap'. This second interface will provide every received in radiotap format.

This is useful for performing wireless network analysis while maintaining an active association.

Example usage:

% modprobe ipw2200 rtap_iface=1 % ifconfig rtap0 up % tethereal -i rtap0

If you do not specify 'rtap_iface=1' as a module parameter then the rtap interface will not be created and you will need to turn it on via sysfs:

% echo 1 > /sys/bus/pci/drivers/ipw2200/*/rtap_iface
