You could use tshark, try the following:

tshark -r <file> -q -z io,stat,1,frame,wlan.fc.retry==1

You would get something similar to:

MacSake:~ sake$ tshark -r dns.cap -q -z io,stat,10,frame,dns.flags.response==0,dns.flags.response==1

Thanks for the hint. It somehow does what it has to...but I would be more interesting to show the retransmitted packets each second for a specific IP address .............Do you know how it can be done this?

Many thanks!
