Overview

This demo shows an 802.11a/g sniffer implemented in Ziria. We have implemented a standard-compliant 802.11a/g transceiver in Ziria and we have deployed it to eavesdrop 802.11a/g packets in channel 1.
We have configured a Netgear AP to transmit 802.11a/g packets and we show the overheard packets from the Ziria’s output. We first leave the AP idle and we see a bunch of beacons. We then start connecting a Lumia phone to the AP and see a different set of packets. The output is not yet properly interfaced to Wireshark so we separately copied over the entire hex dump into Wireshark, and we also showed the output.
