I have got a wifi dongle that supports the ieee80211n protocol. This one is plugged into the pi that gets real time data from the device.The data it receives from the client needs to be sent (may be broadcast) using the IEEE80211n. Now I would like to know how do I receive this data on the other raspberry pi. I have another wifi dongle with the same specification for this raspberry pi.I thought a lot about it. What ever knowledge I got about the working of IEEE80211, i could come up with the following questions. Though I am not 100% sure if I am in the right direction.
- Can I create a ad hoc network between the 2 Pis and receive this data?
- Will the Pi work in infrastructure mode and one of them should act as an access point? If so then which one?
- Is there a library in any language that can be used to receive packets sent via IEEE80211n?
