CAPS - EP/EPS



  • Hallo!

    Und EP bzw. EPS?
    Lerne gerne dazu.  ;)

    Danke.



  • Depending on the capabilities of the APs, the following flags can be included in the output:

    E - Extended Service Set (ESS). Indicates that the station is part of an infrastructure network (in contrast to an IBSS/ad-hoc network).

    I - IBSS/ad-hoc network. Indicates that the station is part of an ad-hoc network (in contrast to an ESS network).

    P - Privacy. Data confidentiality is required for all data frames exchanged within the BSS. This means that this BSS requires the station to use cryptographic means such as WEP, TKIP or AES-CCMP to encrypt/decrypt data frames being exchanged with others.

    S - Short Preamble. Indicates that the network is using short preambles (defined in 802.11b High Rate/DSSS PHY, short pre- amble utilizes a 56 bit sync field in contrast to a 128 bit field used in long preamble mode).

    s - Short slot time. Indicates that the network is using a short slot time.

    Please add this to FAQ and WIKI
