I just wanted to ask how hostapd get frames from the driver. I am
interested about wireless (madwifi). I am a bit confused. Is madwifi
stripping off the 802.11 header and giving the resultant to hostapd or
hostapd itself stips off the 802.11 header??

I am not sure but wat i understand by looking at the code in "l2_packet.h"
and "l2_packet_linux.c" is that hostapd deals with ethernet frames not
802.11 frames. Am i right??

I wanted to ask how hostapd is getting frames from the driver. (Whether
they are ethernet or wireless)

Thank You
