I would like to have a remote packet capture device. I need a firmware update for the standard Linksys upgradeable AP's.
I would like the AP to receive all 802.11 packets on a configurable channel and transmit them via Ethernet. The 802.11 frame will probably have to be encapsulated in Ethernet so it can be sent to a remote destination but then viewed.
The eventual output would be to a .dmp file for WireShark, Omnipeek, Air Magnet etc.
I need to make sure that everyone understands that this device will need to capture all WiFi traffic, not just traffic destined for the Linksys. In fact, I want the Linksys to be passive. It doesn't even need the ability to connect to a wireless device.
So, the functionality would be the Linksys device would be configurable for any channel, and have the ability to scan channels for a configurable amount of time.
The Linksys would capture all traffic (know as monitor mode, promiscuous mode) and transmit it to a remote computer in the form of a .dmp file.
If anyone needs to amend or remove their bids that is understandable.
