What is IE ID 221 in probe response?

Hi Denis,

This IE belongs to a feature called 4X that is supported on AP that contain TI chipsets. It uses the same OID as WPA and WME (0xDD). 
- Length of OID is 4. (0x04)
- OUI is TI's OIU (0x080028).
- The last 0x00 probably indicates this feature is turned off.

In anyway, the parser should ignore this OUI and simply continue parsing other IEs.

Hope this helps.

Regards,
 Eitan

Hi folks, Jouni,

A user reported that he is receiving probe responses with unknown
IE ID 221. IE bytes look like this:

DD 04 08 00 28 00

What is this? I googled for it but found nothing...
