it only has a single interface, the wlan link. However i tried listening on all
interfaces, but still can't see any packet.
I also tried cheating to get udp broadcast: I manually set a correspondence
between a fake ip address and the broadcast MAC address with
$ arp -s 192.168.0.33 ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
and tried communicating with that ip, but no luck.
many thanks for your answer.
