Description (partial)

Symptom:A Cisco AP may attempt to send a data frame to a client even after the client has gone into powersave mode.  I.e. the client sends a null data frame to the AP with PS=1 and the AP ACKs
it, but the AP immediately then sends, or attempts to send, a data frame to that client.

If the client has not yet gone to sleep (or gone offchannel), the client may ACK that data frame.
If it is asleep/offchannel, so that the data frame from the AP is not ACKed, then the AP may send a series of RTS frames, which do not elicit a CTS.
Conditions:Cisco 11n AP with a client that is configured for powersave.
