one of the top features a distribution must always ship in a working state is wireless. Yet we have no way to test it in an automated way. To be able to do that via openQA we need qemu to emulate a wireless adapter. Whether it's emulating existing hardware or implements some virtio device that only works on Linux doesn't matter.

Looking for mad skills in:

qemu kernel

      FYI. " wifi-test is fully automated test script for linux wireless drivers" available at http://wireless.kernel.org/en/developers/Testing/wifi-test . Some results of the tests can be found at http://users.suse.cz/~vbotka/wt/. Cisco AP, Dlink and ASUS AP with CLI (Command Line Interface). For example, Dlink DWL-8200 AP and Cisco1200 series AP is needed. HTH.

      So emulating the wireless adapter alone is not sufficient - it also needs an access point (either physical or virtual) to receive the raw wireless 802.11* data and respond to association requests etc.

      Some years ago an Austrian university tried to contribute Wifi emulation but threw a big blob at us, mixing random Windows hacks with the actual adapter/network emulation code, and didn't care to clean that up. Probably still available in qemu-devel archives as a starting point.

      Cloonix software can do wifi from version 42.03. It uses the mac80211_hwsim kernel module and an agent in the guests that transmits the signal from guest to host and to other guests.
