It is running the iperf server. It is running in station mode as well
as in AP mode, depending on the use case. The wireshark dump was taken
when the bcm43362 is operating in AP mode.

Which specs do you mean?

Yes, I can do that. Note, that I am using wpa_supplicant 2.5 for AP
mode operation (not hostapd).

Right.

No. I guess you mean bcmdhd?
