Skinny Posted September 8, 2016 Share Posted September 8, 2016 (edited) I'm doing a bit of research using Wireshark to examine the behavior of the Tetra in different modes of operation. I'm getting results, but I don't trust that my equipment is reacting fast enough to the packets being broadcast. Can anyone tell me the rate at which the broadcast packets occur (number / sec) when the Pool Interval is set to Normal and the order the SSIDs are broadcast. With my Wireshark capture it indicates a rate of roughly 40 packets per second. Also, from the packet capture it looks as though the SSIDs start out broadcasting alphabetically, but as the capture progresses, SSIDs begin to get broadcast more randomly. The randomness is what makes me think I'm not seeing everything. If I'm not seeing everything, this brings up a bigger question. Can the devices being targeted in the wild keep up with all those broadcasts? Would it be better to start slowing down the Pool Interval for a more productive chance at snagging a targeted client? All fun things I hope to explore. Edit: If you're curious about the other two settings, I'm currently getting 7 to 10 SSIDs broadcast per second at the low interval and approximately 100 per second at Aggressive.
