Hi,all! I have installed AX210 on ubuntu 20.10 with kernel 5.10,and it can capture every single-user frame transmission. but when it is in multi-user ofdma situation, ax210 can only capture very few packects such as  RTS/CTS/BA, no Data packets at all!

     how can i capture these ofdma data frames in mutli-user frame transmission?

thanks for anyone's help!

If you set amsdu_size=3 as suggested in Intel® Linux Support at:

https://wireless.wiki.kernel.org/en/users/Drivers/iwlwifi#about_the_monitorsniffer_mode 

Do you get the same issues?

Hi, MR,David_G_Intel , Thanks for your reply! 

  I had try to set amsdu_size=3 for many times,but the resule were the same!

and I had already read the article https://superuser.com/questions/1531866/802-11ax-monitor-mode-captures-very-few-packets for serveral times carefully.

Do you think is the problem is related to the Mu-MiMO mode ? And something related to the AID ?

 

waiting for your reply! thanks,sir!

Please provide the following information:

  • Sniffer with itextshark: Provide the itextshark commands and its output while enabling the monitor mode, and performing the packet sniffing. Provide both passing (i.e. single-user frame transmission) and failing sniffer logs (i.e. multi-user frame transmission)
  • Dmesg: Complete dmesg logs for both passing and failing scenarios.
  • Provide iPerf commands and output of both iPerf client and server. And is the monitor mode/packet sniffer on the 3rd system? i.e. Not on iPerf client or server system.
  • AP channel and channel width set on XiaoMi WIFI6 router or TP-Link WIFI6 Router, and is the security 'WPA2-Personal'?

Hi, MR.David G.  :
   Thanks for your reply!
 
   But, you had always asked me to provide information again and again, and you never make not a bit progresss. 
   and the Customer Support service is so low effective, this question has sent for almost 2 monts!!! but you sitll asked me to provid more information~  I had 23 years programing expriences, and never see a situation!
    Intel's professional customer support is so disappoint!
 
  I think the  informations i had provided to you were much more enought! 
    I hope i can see some progress by Intell,not just ask me to provid information again and again and again and again.................
 
 
Thanks and wish you have a nice day!
