As I have no working card which supports injection I'm interested to
work on this issue. Currently my KEXT skills are in a beginners stage
My favorite chipset is the Atheros since I use it in Linux-boxes with a
recent madwifi-ng driver.
As far as I have seen there are two Atheros drivers in the KisMACng
source? The one used by KisMAC is the AtheroJack, based on OpenHAL and
only usable for passive scanning without injection. The other one is
AtheroJack, a full network driver, based on the closed source HAL as
used in madwifi, but not working for the moment and therefore not
integrated in KisMAC. Right?
What is the current intent? Should AtheroJack get replaced by
AtherosDriver if at least passive mode is working? What are the pros and
cons of OpenHAL and the closed one? Is allready someone working in this?
