Wireshark-users: [Wireshark-users] AirPcap Nx issue

I just bought an AirPcap Nx device but I can't get reliable data for 2.4GHz 802.11n networks.


The AP is configured for "Up to 130Mbps", client is configured for max 65Mbps, MCS7, 20MHz channel, 800ns GI, 1 spatial stream.

The network is open (no WEP or WPA).

I can see upstream frames (from client to AP) but no downstream frames, except for ACKs and beacons.

I get a lot of invalid frames though (incorrect FCS), where downstream data frames should be.


If I configure the AP for 802.11g ("up to 54Mbps") and client accordingly (54Mbps) everything looks good.


I tested it using iperf configured for UDP @ 32Kbps, bidirectional.


Attached capture files were collected with Wireshark, using the following versions:

Wireshark Version 1.8.1 (SVN Rev 43946 from /trunk-1.8) x64

Airpcap software version 4.1.1

WinPcap 4.1.1


I tried to contact riverbed on this issue with no luck.
