> We are using QCA988x:ath10K driver + OpenWRT 14.x platform and have an issue in sending Probe_Req() out in the air.
> In STA mode Probe_Req() frame is NOT sent over the air, when the device is NOT set to scan_mode. Its simply brought up and using the info from another device's scan list.
> It looks the firmware is NOT sending this frame and its discarded.
> I wish to know what is ath10k firmware's behavior in sending Probe_Request() frame when its NOT in scan_mode.
> - But when I change the code to send Authentication() frame, it goes out and my STA connects to AP
> - when I trigger manually 'iwlist scan' it sends Probe_Req() in all channels, that was confirmed by capturing packets in wireshark, Broadcast frames are sent in the air
