Excluding Beacon frames

Beacon frames can get in the way when working with a raw 802.11 trace. The sheer number of frames obscures patterns in the data. Therefore, it's common to exclude those frames from display. Frame type information is carried in the Frame Control field of the 802.11 header. Beacon frames are identified by a Type code of 0 for Management frames, with a subtype of 8 for Beacon. The filter matching the Type code is wlan.fc.type==0, and the filter matching the Subtype code is wlan.fc.subtype==8. Therefore, to discard frames that match both these conditions, one possible filter is !(wlan.fc.type==0 and wlan.fc.subtype==8).
