Hi Guy, Alexis,

I think, I should have mentioned this earlier.

There does exist two different headers: a 20-byte (legacy) and a 55-byte (with additional, 802.11n support)

To accommodate the 802.11n header, we would need a different dissection at dissect_peekremote(), apart from the way 
legacy header had been dealt.
May be, we can have the 'magic number' as reference from the obtained hex-dump, to choose between the two dissection 

PFA the difference in dissection that omnipeek performs on a 20-byte and a 55-byte header. 
I believe it helps in the classification of fields to be done at dissect_peekremote().

Please let me know your further queries/comments.
Once clear, I'll go ahead to file a bug, with all these snaps & pkt captures.

Thanks and Regards,
