 Airtun-ng also has repeater and tcpreplay-type functionality.  There is a repeater function which allows you to replay all traffic sniffed through a wireless device (interface specified by -i at0) and optionally filter the traffic by a bssid together with a network mask and replay the remaining traffic.  While doing this, you can still use the tun interface while repeating.  As well, a pcap file read feature allows you to replay stored pcap-format packet captures just the way you captured them in the first place.  This is essentially tcpreplay functionality for wifi. Airtun-ng also has repeater and tcpreplay-type functionality.  There is a repeater function which allows you to replay all traffic sniffed through a wireless device (interface specified by -i at0) and optionally filter the traffic by a bssid together with a network mask and replay the remaining traffic.  While doing this, you can still use the tun interface while repeating.  As well, a pcap file read feature allows you to replay stored pcap-format packet captures just the way you captured them in the first place.  This is essentially tcpreplay functionality for wifi.

 +==== Tunneling traffic into WDS networks or WiFi Bridges ====
 +
 +If you use a recent version of airtun-ng, you can use its WDS support to inject traffic into WDS networks and WiFi bridges.
 +Bridges are pretty secure since traffic may be sniffed, but it is impossible to connect with them to send data into the networks.
 +This is where airtun-ng comes into the game. With airtun-ng you can impersonate either of the two endpoints to interact with the other one. Lets assume you can only see one node of the bridge, this is how you can check if an attacker could inject traffic into this side of the network:
 +
 +   * There are two nodes AA:AA:AA:AA:AA:AA and BB:BB:BB:BB:BB:BB.
 +   * Your attacking client can only send to and receive from node A.
 +   * In this case you will only see packets with Transmitter = A and Receiver = B on your interface.
 +   * If you impersonate node B, you could inject traffic into the network behind node A.
 +
 +This is how to setup airtun-ng for this scenario:
 +
 +   airtun-ng -t 1 ath0 -h BB:BB:BB:BB:BB:BB -a AA:AA:AA:AA:AA:AA -i ath0
 +
 +If you are able to see both sides of a WDS/Bridge network, you can enable bidirectional mode. This enables communication with both endpoint's networks. Be aware that bidirectional mode keeps track of clients behind each node in a list in memory, since it needs to know to which of the two endpoints it needs to send a packet to reach a certain client. If you use an embedded system, or there are large amounts of clients connected, this may slow down your machine.
 +
 +   airtun-ng -t 1 ath0 -h BB:BB:BB:BB:BB:BB -a AA:AA:AA:AA:AA:AA -i ath0 -f
 +
 +WDS mode is fully compatible with WEP encryption, so you can use the -w and -y flags as usual.
 +However, Repeater Mode hasn't been tested with WDS.

 You can also inject management and control frames.  This can be done by putting a PCAP file together of frames to be sent, or just using a capture you made before and by replaying the whole file using airtun-ng. You can also inject management and control frames.  This can be done by putting a PCAP file together of frames to be sent, or just using a capture you made before and by replaying the whole file using airtun-ng.
