10.5. WLAN Traffic

Statistics about captured WLAN traffic. This can be found under the Wireless menu and summarizes the wireless network traffic found in the capture. Probe requests will be merged into an existing network if the SSID matches.

Figure 10.1. The “WLAN Traffic Statistics” window

ws stats wlan traffic

Each row in the list shows the statistical values for exactly one wireless network.

Name resolution will be done if selected in the window and if it is active for the MAC layer.

Only show existing networks will exclude probe requests with a SSID not matching any network from the list.

The Copy button will copy the list values to the clipboard in CSV (Comma Separated Values) format.

[Tip]Tip

This window will be updated frequently, so it will be useful, even if you open it before (or while) you are doing a live capture.
