[Winpcap-users] question about send packets

Wireless adapters are always a pain with WinPcap, essentially because
for the moment the Windows kernel doesn't support them at all (the NIC
drivers normally emulate Ethernet in order to work).

First: some wireless adapters are not supported at all by WinPcap. There
is a pretty complete list at
http://www.micro-logix.com/WinPcap/Supported.asp, that you can use to
understand if yours works.

Second: as you can see from the list, some adapters work with
workarounds. The best known are disabling promiscuous mode or updating
to some particular version of the NIC driver.

Third: transmit is normally a lot less tested by people than receive. I
suggest you first to check if capture works (you can use a tool like
WinDump), and then try pcap_sendpacket().
