Probe Request - MGMT frame that is transmitted during active scanning. A client station that is looking for an SSID sends a probe request. AP's that hear the probe request will send a probe response, notifying the client of the AP presence. If a client station receives probe responses from multiple AP's, signal strength and quality characteristics are typically uses by the client station to determine which AP has the best signal and thus which AP to connect to."
