>>Wireless *wifp = (wirelessPhy *) tifp;
I think should be like this
WirelessPhy *wifp = (wirelessPhy *) tifp;
This is TypeCasting, this statement let the System treats the data of type *tifp* as a WirlessPhy type.
BTW, if this is a safe typecast then (I think) WirlessPhy is a subclass of *tifp* type.
