With USB based 802.11b transceivers (radios) so cheap now, it would be great if a small micro could use USB and some not too complex code to send/receive messages on 802.11. This could be merely MAC layer messages. No IP, no TCP. This might be a fairly small amount of code. Maybe even doing UDP on IP via this USB link would be small code. ARP could be avoided with hard-coded addresses.
There's public doman USB code for Linux, from Atmel. But it's not decipherable by me, to find the basic USB MAC layer protocol.
Anyone have any pointers?
