Hi Jeff,

You are right. Actually it was a plain user issue

Thanks a lot for your help.

I think the problem is that the packets are encrypted:

[...]

The GPRS-LLC dissector does not hand the payload off to the next dissector when this is the case.

I suppose in your other (PCAP) captures the data is not encrypted and/or the checksums are correct.
