Hi,

Following steps from this discussion: https://community.infineon.com/t5/Wi-Fi-Bluetooth-for-Linux/Monitor-Mode-Feature-on-CYW43455/td-p/13... we cannot enable monitor mode od CYW43455.

wl ver
18.15 RC1.67
wl0: Aug 29 2023 01:47:08 version 7.45.265 (28bca26 CY) FWID 01-b677b91b

We're getting error -23 when running wl monitor 1 command:

wl monitor 1
wl: error -23

And also monitor command is not listed in help menu.

Since the wl version is newer than the one in the post is there anything we should do additionally to be able to use monitor mode?

Regards,

Tijana

Hi @tijanasaranovac :

error -23 means not supported.

Please check attached FW which can support monitor.

[ 32.156731] brcmfmac: brcmf_c_preinit_dcmds: Firmware: BCM4345/6 wl0: Apr 1 2022 00:35:06 version 7.45.249 (d826021 CY) FWID 01-b52c64b
root@imx8mqevk:~/fmac# wl up
root@imx8mqevk:~/fmac# wl monitor
0
root@imx8mqevk:~/fmac# wl monitor 1
root@imx8mqevk:~/fmac# wl monitor
1

If still failed, you need to apply for new wl tool which support monitor command.

Best Regards,

Colin

Hi @Qi_Colin 

is there any reason why monitor mode is not supported in the godzilla release? As I can see from your example and attached file, wl tool is not exactly the newer version than ours.

Hi @tijanasaranovac :

Monitor feature is an optional feature, and we don't update it already.

Hi @Qi_Colin ,

so if it is not supported in godzilla release and it is an optional feature, the only thing is that we need to wait for the new release in case it would be available there?

Is there a plan to add support for monitor mode in new release?

Best regards,

Tijana
