This is our old Q&A Site. Please post any new questions and answers at ask.wireshark.org.

In the sample capture output below following are my questions: 1) Packet #1 to #16 belong to same AMPDU but why does !16 have different mactime ? 2) The mactime increases from data pkt #16 to Ack #17, but after that decreases for the subsequent data pkt#18.

I have added the mactime delta column after calculation for reference.

Captures done using Wireshark on Ubuntu using ath9k driver corresponding to AR9287 chipset.
