    Can I get signal strength of each packet under monitor mode?

      We have 3 questions in our development.

       

      1. Can I get signal strength of each packet under monitor mode? Could you give us an example?

       

      2. Can Monitor Mode work with STA Mode together at the same time?

       

      3. If we dont set any filter in monitor mode, the chip will dead after a little while, why? Can we solve this problem?

       

       

      Thank you very much!

          1. No you cannot get signal strength of each packet under monitor mode.

           

          2. No. This is not supported.

           

          3. The total number of packets on the medium far exceed the bandwidth of the WLAN device, the bandwidth of bus between the WLAN device and the host, and the packet processing resources available on the host. We currently do not have a solution that can survive the running monitor mode without filters.

            nikvh, Thank you very much for your reply!

             

            Signal strength under monitor mode is very important in our project. Is there any possible way to get these information? By BD or something else?
