Hi all,

Is it possible to receive frames with FCS errors while working in Master (or
Ad Hoc) mode?

In the prism2_rx() function (in file hostap_hw.c) I read:
 /* FCS errors should not come this far, but let's make sure that frames
  * with errors will be dropped even in Host AP mode */

Does it mean that frames with FCS errors are discarded by the card?

Thanks in advance,
