During the DTIM period the AP announces that multicast/broadcast traffic is available by setting the AID to 0. If there are any unicast packets buffered for a particular station (right before the DTIM period) does/can the AP set the corresponding AID?¡é?€??s or are buffered unicast packets announced only during TIM and not the DTIM.
Any help would be appreciated.
All TIMs, including the special DTIMs, can announce unicast frames buffered for dozing stations. Only DTIMs announce buffered multicast frames.
I hope this helps. Thanks. /criss
