We have also tried without success.
We have used the TX path from Tiago and a modified version of the RX path (firmware and FPGA at their latest update).
I also felt confident that the the TX path works, and consequently that the RX path had some problem.
So we have tried to transmit with the USRP2 and receive with a real IEEE802.11 chipset (Ralink chipset RT2500).
This chipset has no firmware and we modified the linux driver so as to:
- avoid mac CRC (Everything received on the MAC layer is passed to the higher layers);
- set fixed modulation schemes (i.e. DBPSK 1Mbps);
- set PLCP long preamble.
- set complete monitor/passive mode.
The chipset detects some transmitted frames. This could be an indication that the PLCP preamble/header is correct (?).
However the PLCP payload is just rubbish.
We have also tried to submit stupid payloads (like ffffffff) and I have the impression that what we receive is just random. :-(
If we obtain some successful result in the next few days, I'll let you know!
