mac80211 inject


  BTW, I see you are involved in aircrack-ng. For monitoring mac80211
  drivers/devices, I recommend using virtual interfaces instead of
  taking the current interface down and setting it to monitor
  mode. Pick an interface name, send it to
  /sys/class/ieee80211/wiphyX/add_iface, set that interface to monitor
  mode, and bring it up. This allows you to capture frames (and in the
  future, inject frames) without affecting the current connection,
  provided there is no channel changing.

this doesn't work for rt8180 2.6.25-rc5, however, injection should
work just fine with mac80211
