What Information is Gathered in the Advanced Statistics Window?

Advanced statistics

Objective: To provide details on what information is gathered in the Advanced Statistics window of the Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software application, when the Intel WiFi client is connected to a legacy or 802.11n APs.

Transmit/Receive tab: Displays percentage values for non-directed and directed packets.

  • Total host packets: The total number of directed and non-directed packets counts: Transmit - (Mbps), Receive - (Mbps).
  • Non-directed packets: The number of received packets broadcast to the wireless network.
  • Directed packets: The number of received packets sent specifically to the WiFi adapter.
  • Total Bytes: The total number of bytes for packets received and sent by the WiFi adapter.

If PROSet is connected to legacy AP; it shows the statistics as in the attached screen shot.

There are 2 kinds of packets that are being displayed:

  • Non-directed packets – Multi-cast and broadcast packets
  • Directed packets – Unicast packets

If a PROSet client is connected to an 802.11n AP; it will show the rate details as shown in the figure below:

Directed Packets (High-Throughput) as shown in the above screen shot are unicast 802.11n traffic. 1x and 2x are the number of spatial streams (i.e. number of antennas used for that data rate).

Interpretation:
1x6 Mbps: One antenna transmitting at a data rate of 6 Mbps.
2x6 Mbps: Two antennas transmitting at a data rate of 6 Mbps.

Operating System:

Windows Vista 64*, Windows Vista 32*, Windows 7 (32-bit)*, Windows 7 (64-bit)*, Windows XP *, Windows XP 64-Bit Edition*
