WiFi analysis

Hi,
I did a quick analysis of the WiFi functionality of the Pentax K-1. Feel free to have a look at articles:pentax_k-1_wifi [wiki.antiguru.de]. Although just a dump of information it might give some clues on how the communication actually works.

Cheers

A real good job.

It should be possible now, to write a program to use from a computer without an emulator.

Thanks

Any idea how tied up to Windows system calls the code is?

Edit:

A bit more info about the K-1's wireless:

WPA2
b, g, n (no ac or a)
2.4ghz only

The vendor is a company called Taiyo Yuden.

Anyone who wants to continue this analysis:

I recommend
-Wireshark
-The Advanced Rest Client (A Chrome App)
-A DC Adapter for your poor K-1 (the off-brand one is only $10).

Anyone did benchmark the WiFi transfer rate of the K-1 when sending files to a host device?
I'm curious about the maximum bitrate.

Eeek!

Zombie thread! Transfer rate should be easy enough to estimate by transferring a file of known size.

How about average/maximum transfer rates?

10Mbps, give or take, mostly take. So about the same as connecting the camera via USB IIRC.
