Is there a way to access WiFi beacon data?

  • Hi everyone,

    I'm currently working on a project which requires me to have access to the beacon frames sent by nearby WiFi devices.
    I took a look at the WLAN functions and the source code and didn't find anything useful, has anyone had any luck with it?
    Also, if there is no way to this (yet), would Pycom be interested in implementing this feature?

  • Hi @Kenneth, thank you for taking the time to look that up and add it as an idea!

  • Hi @nicoloboatto So unfortunatley, Scapy cannot currently be used with MicroPython, However i feel it is something that is worth looking into further! I went ahead and Added this as an Idea under Pybytes Feedback, it can be found here

  • Hi @nicoloboatto , i will look into this and see if i can figure out a way to get this to work. Normally i would say to use the Scapy Library, however due to the restrictions of MicroPython im not 100% sure this will work, I will get back to you tomorrow and let you know what i find out. Thank you!
