Using 88W9098 device in monitor mode

Hello @ all,

I am trying to put my PCIe Combo device (88W9098) into monitor mode but unfortunately without success.

Normal operation is OK (e.g. connect to a access point), but setting up to monitor mode does not word.

I have the following system environment:

- i.mx8m mini processor with 88W9098 combo device.

- Linux os 6.1.1

I tried the following sequence:

"ifconfig mlan0 down"

"iwconfig mlan0 mode monitor"

After the iwconfig cmd I got the folling response:

Error for wireless request "Set Mode" (8B06) :
SET failed on device mlan0 ; Invalid argument.

In general no other mode that "managed" could be switched to.

Does anybody know what went wrong or what to do?

Best regards and thanks in advance

Dear @dedrews 

 

I noticed that once post was not answered yet...

Monitor mode is not supported by 88W9098.
