Miss match of MAC address in sniffer to that of recv_mgmt

Reported by: Assigned to:

Hi ,

I am working on madwifi0.9.2 with debian kernel. I have problem with the second MAC address (i_addr2 ). I am printing the MAC address in recv_mgmt() function by, printk("<1> MAC address ---->>> %s",ether_sprintf(wh->i_addr2));

here i am able to get some MAC address.

The problem which i am facing is that, when i check for beacons using sniffer, its listing different MAC addresses. But the MAC address which i got in recv_mgmt is not matching to any of those MAC addresses listed by sniffer.

plz help in this matter.

Baseer Ahmed.
