/me nods as Learner says a whole bunch of things he knows.
I think we're having what's called a communication breakdown here. Or I really am just not understanding what you are asking.
Nah, See 1's and 0's are set in Layer 1 or on the physical layer, They start being grouped and diveded into packets in Layer 2 or the Logical Layer. I am looking for info on the packet headers and footers.
Right. Layer 2 is actually divided into frames, but why be anal about it =Þ, and layer 2 is the data-link layer, not the logical layer (in OSI at any rate). Now layer 2 is divided into the MAC (media access control) and LLC (logical link control) sublayers, each handling part of the data-link layer's scope.
So, when talking about "Wi-Fi" what we are talking about is the pysical means of transferring data, and the way to access these physical media.
AS far as the protocols, Wi-Fi uses TCP/IP in most applications, meaning that all the layer 3 protocol used is IP. So what I'm saying is once you get to the IP portion of the packet it has the exact same structure as a wire packet does (as far as TCP/IP is concerned).
That leaves us Layer 2 for protocols and packet structure. Which is fully explained in the documents I referred you to. What bits correspond to what portion of the headers and footers, and what the field's names and purposes are.
And remember with Wi-Fi, info is not transmittied the same way as on a wire. The encoding scheme to RF signals is a lot more complex than say manchester encoding used on wire.
I dunno, everything you're asking for is in the links I gave you man. Those are literally everything there is to know about wifi. I know the 802.11a doc has a complete, bit for bit, example of a typical packet sent using 802.11a. It is 6 pages of each individual bit explained. If that's not what you mean then I'm totally lost.
