WiFi Regulatory Testing
« on: April 13, 2016, 02:12:59 AM »
Does any one know how to go about doing frequency testing (ie for FCC or CE compliance)

Is there a standard mechanism for doing that on either Openwrt or Linux in general?

Thanks.

Testing for FCC and CE compliance is always done in a controlled environment (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anechoic_chamber).

In this lab they perform emission and immunity test with dedicated hardware.

Sorry, What I am interested in here is the mechanism in the driver to send out carrier frequency on a specific channel.  In the original Ralink driver, there are private IOCTLs which would allow me to send arbitrary commands to the driver.  In the driver that is being used right now, those do not exist.  I was wondering if there is some standard mechanism in Linux to control the hardware in this way.  Thanks
