Wireshark-dev: [Wireshark-dev] [patch] Add a1, a2, a3, a4 address fields to packet-ieee80211 di
From: Solomon Peachy <[email protected]>
Date: Wed, 23 Aug 2006 17:38:28 -0400
This is one of those things that's been bugging me off and on for a 
couple of years now.

The problem with the 'wlan.da/wlan.sa/etc' fields is that they switch
around based on the frame type.  Sometimes we actually want to know what
the actual a1/a2/a3/a4 fields of a frame are, independently of any
higher-level interpretations.

I've attached a patch that adds wlan.a1 through wlan.a4 as hidden fields 
so we can use them in filters and whatnot. 

(A case could be made for making them visible, but duplicating the 
 address fields could be confusing.  Perhaps behind a collapsable tree 
 item?)
