we are working on ns-2.29 and we have produced a patch for automatic
sending of beacon frame every second inside mac 802.11 layer.
Using isAp parameter we can create a wireless node with access point
behavior. As an example:
$ns node-config -isAp ON
This triggers the capability of sending beacon frames.
Right now beacon are unformatted empty packets but we plant to give them
a more structured form in the future.
patch is attached. In result code we marked our changes with tag
"//ModLart", you can easily delete it after applying the patch.
We tried to understand the MAC layer code as much as we could, but more
experienced developers might review it.
