In the headers: eeprom.h - eeprom layout (i.e.: calibration, gain, ...) fwcmd.h - firmware commands (read/write register, set channel, set key, ...) fwdesc.h - definitions about the firmware descriptor (at first, that's probably not very important) hw.h - hardware register file (mostly the MAC registers) phy.h - hardware register file (PHY registers) wlan.h - definition of the tx and rx headers (and tails) other than that, there's still the original ar9170 (less complex, but different firmware) and of course the original vendor driver: otus. So much for carl9170. If you want documents about the chip then you have to ask a Qualcomm rep. > Essentially I just want to put the device into monitor mode, be able > to change channels, etc. Any information would be appreciated. Actually, you could just capture what the driver does to setup the device [the userspace usbmon tools can help there] and simply replay the commands. But if you want, you can of course port the code from phy.c, mac.c into java and start from there. Good luck!
