Wireshark-users: [Wireshark-users] Mesh beacons in open80211s?

I'm experimenting with the open80211s implementation on mesh networking. I've patched Wireshark with the mesh patch but I'm unable to see any mesh beacons. In my understanding there's no other way to browse/locate existing mesh networks in open80211s?

I'm able to see peer link open and mesh path selection packages (with filters wlan_mgt.fixed.cat_code == 30 and 32, as described in http://www.o11s.org/trac/wiki/HOWTO ) but how can I see the beacons?

I'm using Wireshark 1.02 with mesh patch (0.2.1) in Ubuntu 9.04 with compat-wireless and A-link WL54USB (zydas zd1211rw) with capture interface wmaster0.

Thanks for your time,
- Petri
