Airpcap and WireShark support for 802.11k, 802.11r, 802.11u?

Folks,

I have a need to troubleshoot/test 802.11k, 802.11u, and 802.11r messaging.

Does anyone know if AirPcap Nx + Wireshark will capture and properly decode these 802.11 amendments:

802.11k

802.11r

802.11u

I have looked in Wireshark forums and seen references to all of the above amendments but I can't find anything conclusive to indicate the level of support for these headers/fields/messages.

Thanks for any insight.

Joey

What products are you using that will do 802.11r?

George,

I don't know yet. However, to begin testing devices I'll need a tool that can decode the protocols so I can see who supports what.

Based on my research for evidence sake,

Wireshark 1.7.0 dev branch appears to:

Support 802.11u fully

Support 802.11r fully

Support 802.11k partially

The 802.11k information elements I can't find or are not supported for 802.11k are:

7.3.2.42 Measurement Pilot Transmission Information

7.3.2.43 BSS Available Admission Capacity

7.3.2.44 BSS AC Access Delay supported

7.3.2.45 RRM Enabled Capabilities 

7.3.2.46 Multiple BSSID
