Thanks for all the replies.
One more thing I would like to ask is, one thing I've noticed that the last three digits of time shown in Wireshark till nanosecs precision are always zero (for every packet).

For eg. Arrival Time: Oct 23, 2013 23:21:07.388979000 IST.

In the above case also the last three digits in .388979000 are zero, which means microsecs are multiplied with 1000 to get the nanosecs.

Can somebody please clarify more on this as to how the nanosecs obtained?
