i 'm thinking of configuring wireshark to sniff packets using a siflex HP board. wireshark does support the 802.15.4 protocol. is there a guide on how to do this? or have you done it? I assume there is some com software or driver that could be run on a PC. the boards I would be monitoring would be linux based.

Does the TiWi5 also support the other part of promiscuous mode where arbitrary packets can be built? For example can I build and send a packet where I specify all of the fields in the wifi packet including addresses? I need to be able to craft packets for network testing and it is hard to find chip sets that include this feature.
