Subject:what is the meaning of each field in kismet packet dump information
Date:23:24:24 11/02/2011

Excuse me if it is already documented, but I search through the documentation many times and did not find anything. What does each field mean in the packet dump? for example, I got this one:

IEEE802 Beacon frame, SN=1000, FN=0, Flags=......., BI=100, SSID="\000", Name="ap1.sw1.cr1a.da", I understand SN is probably sequence number , so what is BI? what is Name? Why is SSID \000 ? and why do not not see received signal strength and noise level though PPI is enabled in the config file? How should I modify kismet code so that I can see RSSI in the packet information?

Thanks a lot for your help!
