Hi folks,

I have some 802.11ad captures because of some fixes to the Wireshark
802.11 dissector I am looking at doing.

One thing I notice is that the radiotap header contains both a Channel field
and an MCS field.

The Present flags say that Flags are present, Channel is present and
HT Information is present.

The channel frequency is 60480MHz which seems to be reasonable.

The MCS field says that the MCS index is present and that index is 0.

It seems to me that this last field is perhaps incorrect, because the
radiotap information dissector claims that the PHY type is 802.11n,
and that seems to come about because the radiotap header use the MCS
index info to claim that the PHY type was 802.11n.

Should I be letting the capture hardware vendor know that they are
generating the wrong info?

I probably should also have some override stuff in the radiotap
dissector that uses the frequency field to correctly set the PHY type.

Any comments?
