Hello, all !

AFAIK, the maximum PSDU size of IEEE 802.11 WLAN is 2346 bytes, while that
of Ethernet is 1500 bytes.
and the IP layer of linux kernel fragmentizes its incoming data from upper
layer into 1500 bytes long packet.

However, I'd like to send frames that is longer than 1500 bytes through IEEE
802.11 WLAN.
Is this possible? If yes, what should I do?

Actually, I tried SOCK_PACKET, but I failed to send such frames. 
(When i call sendto, it returns negative value. I haven't figured out the
reason yet.)

Thanx in advance.
