How 89600 VSA decodes the MAC address

Hi everybody,


I am monitoring the Wifi signal using WLAN 802.11a/b/g/j/p application. There are several wifi AP in the area that I have put the signal analyzer. 89600 VSA software is also installed and everything works fine and I can see the demodulated signal (IQ constellation) and spectrum. 


Now my question is that, how can we know that from which AP this signal comes from? Can the signal analyzer decode the 802.11 MAC header and provide the MAC address? 


Thank you.
