Changing the length to 200 bytes didn't realy help. Packets with length
0 to 2D and one with length BA (200-14) were received.
Playing with different lengt fields showed that the D-LINK driver drops
packetes with 'invalid' length fields. Valid means that the length field
specifies the number of data bytes (or is less than 46).
Changing sendpack.c to the following code works with the D-LINK driver, too:
for(i=0; i<150; i++)
/* set packet size to min. 60 bytes */
if( i < 60 ) j = 60;
else j = i;
/* set 802.3 length field (packet len - header len) */
/* send down the packet */
if (pcap_sendpacket(fp, packet, j) != 0)
> Hope it helps
Thank you, it helped a lot!
