The IEEE is the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers.
They release various technical standards, including the IEEE 802.x network protocol standards for LANs and MANs e.g. Ethernet, TokenRing, WLAN, …
The IEEE has formally defined many of the protocols one is likely to see on networks today. Wireshark has dissectors for many of these protocols including:
IEEE 802.3 - Ethernet
IEEE 802.5 - TokenRing
IEEE 802.11 - Wi-Fi
IEEE 802.1Q - VLAN
IEEE 802.2 - LLC
IEEE 802.3ad-2000 - LinkAggregationControlProtocol (lacp)
IEEE 802.1AB - LinkLayerDiscoveryProtocol (lldp)
XXX - Need to update this list to include references to all IEEE based protcols supported by Wireshark.
XXX - Should the list be sorted alphabetically by IEEE spec number?
