Assuming I have two APs. I want one AP to monitor another AP's beacon information, such as whether that AP is buffering traffic (TIM), TSF and everything contained in the beacon. They can monitor each. I found with iwlist scan, we can get TSF of other APs, but I don't know how iwlist scan can get the beacon information even though I have read the source code. My wireless driver is ath9k.

Do you have any ideas about it? Thank you.
