Great :) . Detecting stations isn't a problem anymore! I found a good
and clean solution for all wired related problems (detecting,
authorize, accounting). The solution is a kernel module im writing at
the moment. It has nearly the same ioctls like hostap driver to handle
stations. Internal it has a hook to netfilter to drop unauthorized
packets (pass new stations to user daemon) and accept packets from/to
authozied station. I hope first version will be ready end of the week.
