Looking at various 802.11 primers, it looks like a wifi station can be participating in any of these service sets:

  • BSS (Basic service set)
  • ESS (Extended service set)
  • IBSS (Independent basic service set)
  • MBSS (Mesh basic service set)
  • QBSS (QOS basic service set)

Can I detect which service set is in effect using wireshark?

  • Is this question purely academic or is there a purpose behind it?
