The three types of frames you can see on an 802.11 network include management, data, and control. Lisa Bock shows the three types of frames in Wireshark and creates an IO graph showing the beacon frames in the capture.
- [Instructor] On a wireless network,…there are three types of 802.11 frames.…Management frames establish connectivity.…For example, you might see beacon frames…transmitting to everyone from the wireless access point,…to all that are listening.…Data frames contain some form of data.…And control frames help with the delivery…of data and management; for example,…in a control frame, you might see…request to send, clear-to-send.…
I'm in Wireshark, and I wanted to show you…what happens when I launch a packet capture on my wi-fi.…Now I'm on a Windows machine.…Now first I'll go up to view,…and wireless toolbar, and right under there,…it says wireless controls are not supported…in this version of Wireless, but we can go over…to the preferences and, in this case,…you can see that I can enable decryption,…which I have before, and in this case,…you would put your key if you do know them.…
But we're not going to; we'll jus cancel that.…And I'll take away the wireless toolbar.…But I will begin capturing on my wi-fi network.…
