Wi-Fi (WLAN, IEEE 802.11)
Wi-Fi, or IEEE 802.11, is the standard for wireless LANs, or WLANs.
It is specified by [http://standards.ieee.org/getieee802/802.11.html various IEEE 802.11 specifications].
XXX - add a brief description of 802.11 history
- 802.11 is the lowest software layer, so it only depends on hardware.
XXX - Add example traffic here (as plain text or Ethereal screenshot).
The 802.11 dissector is fully functional.
(XXX add links to preference settings affecting how 802.11 is dissected).
Example capture file
XXX - Add a simple example capture file. Keep it short, it's also a good idea to gzip it to make it even smaller, as Ethereal can open gzipped files automatically.
A complete list of 802.11 display filter fields can be found in the [http://www.ethereal.com/docs/dfref/w/wlan.html display filter reference]
