    Any support for parsing custom Information Elements in beacon frames?

    user_108962310

      So I can see that there is support for adding custom IE's to SoftAP mode.

       

      Is there any support for receiving and parsing custom IE's in incoming beacon frames?

          Helloļ¼š

           

          we have a packet filter to parse the packet received, please have a check if you can get your answer from below info.

           

          * This application demonstrates usage of WLAN packet filters combined with monitor mode.
          *
          * Packet filters allow an application to specify exactly which kind of
          * packets it wants by setting templates that all incoming packets will
          * be matched against.
          *
          * Each filter has an option that determines whether matching packets are passed
          * up to the app processor or dropped, defining inclusive or exclusive filters.
          *
          * Filters can also be used without monitor mode (ie without recieving the packets) when only
          * the number of matches to a given filter is needed, without the actual data.
          *
          * Note that if no filters are installed and monitor mode is on, all incoming packets wll be
          * sent to the callback. But using filters to cut down the number of packets captured is
          * recomended in order to cut down on system resource usage,
          *
          * Some packet parsing is done here to show usage but is not meant to be definitive nor
          * exhaustive.
          *
          * Both IEEE802.11 layer 2 packets (802.11) and layer 3 packets (IP, ARP, etc) filtering
          * is demonstrated here.
          *
          * Features demonstrated
          * - Defining filters.
          * - Adding, Enabling/Disabling, Listing & removing filters
          * - Setting up monitor mode with callbacks.
          * - Recieving packets from the filters.
          * - Demonstrates various 802.11 and IP filters.
          * - Examining stats from filters.
          * - Parsing layer 2 802.11 packets.
          * - Parsing layer 3 IP packets.
