Shown is a screenshot of a wireless protocol analyzer displaying the decode information for a single 802.11
encrypted data + CF-Poll frame. The infrastructure BSS on which this information was captured is using
WEP and this particular frame was sent from a client station (STA) to an access point (AP).As a protocol analyst, how would you explain the existence of this frame on the wireless medium given the
information in the decode?
The IEEE 802.11 network is using both version 1 and version 2 protocols simultaneously. This
unexpected frame is from the version 2 protocol set.
The frame was sent by a client station that does not comply with IEEE HR/DSSS standard to an access
point that is Wi-Fi certified.
The access point is operating as a repeater, and clients must poll repeater access points in order to
transmit data frames through them.
The frame was misinterpreted because of insufficient information received by the analyzer due to frame
