Are there any software libraries and/or wireless drivers that make it possible to turn a sequence of binary data into a wireless packet in the air? For example, if someone used Airpcap/Wireshark to capture a series of interesting packets, is there some library that can be fed that binary data in order to turn it back into wireless packets for testing purposes? If so, can we then also make minor alterations to the values of the packet in order to generate a wide variety of testing scenarios? Is anyone aware of tools/libraries that enable or assist this scenario?

NOTE: Cross-posting this to StackOverflow and IT-Security, as I am honestly not sure which of these it belongs in.

Maybe backtrack linux - it does injections. It has numerous tools for such things, most of them working pretty much OK. – Andrew Smith Aug 26 '12 at 21:41 - here you have list of drivers, and there is something about injection support too - you need one of these supported chipsets – Andrew Smith Aug 26 '12 at 21:44
Please don't cross-post. If it is on-topic on one site, the other will just close and/or migrate it. As it is, I think this is probably more on-topic for StackOverflow as I do not really see any security issues being raised. – Iszi Aug 26 '12 at 22:24
