I would like to be able to capture an MPDU Delimiter that is part of an A-MPDU, and see the contents of those 4 bytes displayed on the image below.

enter image description here

Is there a way to do this in, for example, Wireshark and can someone provide the instructions and perhaps a .pcap file.

You can purchase a hardware like AirPcap, which is a USB-based 802.11 radio designed to work effectively with Wireshark. It comes with drivers tuned to Wireshark and operates very well.

Be certain to monitor the correct RF(Radio Frequency) channel. For example, if the wireless network is set to channel 1 for the traffic you’re interested in, then configure Wireshark to monitor channel 1.
