Does "set-up frames" means the same thing as a TCP handshake?


"TDLS is based on the IEEE 802.11z standard amendment. TDLS is characterized by the use of set-up frames that are encapsulated in data frames that can be transmitted through the access point (AP) transparently. This is known as 'tunneling' the frame through the AP. The result of this tunneling action is that direct connections can be formed in a Wi-Fi network without a requirement for special functionality in the AP. Wi-Fi TDLS devices can set up direct links providing improved speed of connection and overall bandwidth efficiency.

no it is not the same as tcp handshake.
A TDS Link bypasses the AP and goes direct from one endpoint to another
