Below are the explanation for some frames

-Association request is sent by a station to associate to a BSS.

-Association response is sent in response to an association request

-Reassociation request is sent by a station changing association to another AP in the same ESS (so roaming between APs, orreassociating with the same AP)

-Reassociation response is the response to the reassociation request

-Probe request is sent by a station in order to “scan” for an SSID

-Probe response is sent by each BSS participating to that SSID

-Beacon is a periodic frame sent by the AP (or stations in case of IBSS) and giving information about the BSS

-ATIM is the traffic indication map for IBSS (in a BSS, the TIM is included in the beacon)

-Disassociation is sent to terminate the association of a station

-Authentication is the frame used to perform the 802.11 authentication (and not any other type of authentication)

-Deauthentication is the frame terminating the authentication of a station.

-Action is a frame meant for sending information elements to other stations (when sending in a beacon is not possible/best)

 

-PS-Poll is the Power-save poll frame polling for buffered frames after a wake-up from a station

-RTS is the request-to-send frame

-CTS is the clear-to-send frame (often response to RTS)

-ACK is the acknowledge frame sent to confirm receipt of a frame.

 

-Data frame is the basic frame containing data

-Null frame is a frame meant to contain no data but flag information

-QoS data is the QoS version of the data frame

-QoS null is the QoS version of the null frame
