Please look at the kernel source in the networking folder you will find the necessary API's in there

Frankly i am no kernel guru, my best bet is you need to hung out with the kernel networking guys they should be able to give you pointers i think they should have a mailing list or you can use LKML

think you for this recommendation,
but the problem is that this book does not deal with wireless drivers.
I want modify the Random Backoff algorithm and i have not been able to find it in the linux kernel source.
if this is not implemented in the kernel how can i force the kernel or the wireless card (Intel pro wireless 2200BG) to use my algorithm
please help me.
