Follow the steps below to view your client adapter's statistics.
From the Profiles screen, tap the Statistics tab. The Receive Statistics screen appears (see
The statistics are calculated as soon as your client adapter is started.
PLCP CRC Errors

Receive Statistics Screen
describes each receive statistic that is displayed for your client adapter.
The number of multicast packets that were received successfully.
The number of broadcast packets that were received successfully.
The number of unicast packets that were received successfully.
The number of bytes of data that were received successfully.
The number of beacon packets that were received successfully.
The number of times the client adapter started to receive an
802.11 Physical Layer Convergence Protocol (PLCP) header but
the rest of the packet was ignored due to a cyclic redundancy
check (CRC) error in the header.
CRC errors can be attributed to packet collisions caused
by a dense population of client adapters, overlapping
access point coverage on a channel, high multipath
conditions from bounced signals, or the presence of other
2.4-GHz signals from devices such as microwave ovens,
wireless handset phones, etc.
