Yes, but doesn't explain why there is no batman-adv packet from ARM
the laptop and the other way around. batman-adv is a layer bellow and has
nearly nothing to do with the stuff which runs over it (the only thing
accesses the layer over it should be the gateway stuff).
@Juha, I found time and looked a little bit at the stuff which came from
ARM in the last log. Wireshark means that it is a Raw ethernet packet. And
thinks that the stuff attached is a IPX packet.... but reading the raw
reveals that it should be the batman-packet.... with extra data between
ethernet header and the actual batman-adv packet. So the problem looks to
little bit like hardware of the arm does something very stupid to our
I've attach a small picture to explain what I mean. The green part it the
normal receiver and sender stuff for ethernet. The orange part is not
explainable for me... Have we forgot some alignment stuff? Is your card
some extra data? I am not sure what that could mean right now.
The red thing is the ethernet type for batman-adv, pink the type of
packet, yellow the protocol version and light blue the flags for that
I don't know more color - so just marked the rest of the packet blue. The
amount of bytes are correct and it looks fine to me.
As anyone a good idea? Maybe a small capture of a normal ping test and a
rawsend test between the both could help to understand the problem better.
can you maybe tell us what kind of hardware is used inside the arm for the
This looks interesting, I've had problems with the wlan driver before but it has been
quite stable for a while. Wlan chip in use is CSR UniFi 1050, with driver compiled from
CSR supplied sources.
I'll try your rawsend and ping capturing during the weekend. Sorry for the bother in
advance if this turns out to be due the crappy wlan driver (as said, it has been giving
problems earlier, though I haven't seen any packet mangling before).
