I am part of a product group that is developing a low cost wireless intrusion detection system, for home usage.
We have already produced and delivered to market ESP8266 based product however for the new thing, we need the chipset to be able to enter promiscuous mode and receive/inject 802.11 packets on the fly without any limits.
ESP8266 is limited to 112bytes max, which is not enough to even parse the Beacon frame properly.
What are the alternatives for ESP8266 currently - that allow:
- to capture the 802.11 frames
- have no packet length limits
- allow packet injection
Ps. doesn't have to be ARDUINO - but needs to be C/C++ programmable.
Thanks in advance.
