[Cerowrt-devel] Recording RF management info _and_ associated traffic?

I'm trying to track down some poor wireless issues we are having at 
work.  At random times the 5Ghz WLANs we have just go to hell.

I've been sniffing in monitor mode which has been quite enlightening 
there's certainly a lot more going on in the 5Ghz channels than I was 

Monitor mode shows me loads of stuff I didn't know was there but what it 
doesn't show me is how all that other traffic interacts with the traffic 
on my ESS.

 From what I've been reading it seems like you with most cards you can't 
grab the 802.11 management info and actual traffic on the network at the 
same time.

Is this possible with a WNDR3[78]00 CeroWRT (or openWRT) setup?
