How to configure the wifi module in test mode?

Post by jorini »

Currently, I am using the Odroid C4 electronics with a wifi module (Realtek RTL8821CU), and it works correctly with OS Android 9.0 Pie.

Now, I need to do certification tests of my product in a laboratory, and they ask me that to pass the certification tests I must be able to configure the Wi-Fi module in three operating modes: Continuous Tx, Continuous Rx and Normal Operation.

Can you tell me the procedure to put your Wifi module in each of the different operating modes?
Do you have or know any application for this purpose?

Our WiFi module 5B and 5BK models already passed FCC / CE / KC certification process.
You can find official certification approval documents in the WiKi page.

Since our third part companies tested and got the certification with a normal Windows PC, we don't know well how to implement the three operation modes on Linux/Ubuntu SBC.
As far as I know, Realtek supplies a regulatory certification guide document and a couple of utilities under NDA.

Hi, We need to do the certification tests to be able to export to Mexico, where they have their own regulations, and we have to pass the IFT/NOM in an official laboratory.

I have no idea indeed since we have no experience.

I recommend you to find other WiFi modules which already got the IFT/NOM certification.
At this moment, C4 Android OS image can work with the following chipset devices.
- RTL8811CU
- RTL8821CU
- RTL8811AU
- RTL8188CUS
- RT5572N
- RT5370N
