I need to develop a wifi measurement system, and I was wondering what
the group's opinion is of the idea of using madwifi and an atheros PCI
I have to test wifi performance of devices that are inside a metal
box. The box has two antennas inside, and those antennas are fed
through ports on the box. I need a PCI card to put in a linux PC test
station that has two antenna ports that I can connect to the box.
Then, I need to configure the PC's wifi driver as an access point. I
need to modulate the transmit power way down, and measure the file
transfer throughput to the device in the box.
Is Atheros a good choice for this application? Will I have a hard
time instrumenting the madwifi-ng driver to gather statistics on
Can anyone suggest a different wifi chipset that I might find more
