802.11 shows:
Mac address of access point
shows duration in which a computer must not send any frames out

please add to this also & also what are the implications of knowing the mac address of the access point and other differences?

    an 802.11 frame is much different than an 802.3 frame; there are too many to list; it would be pointless to be honest. Maybe we can provide some subtle differences if you provide what it is you are trying to resolve.
