Physical layer data unit format


In a wireless communication system wherein communication devices exchange information utilizing data units that conform to a first format, wherein the first format includes a short training field (stf) spread with a first spread code, a physical layer (phy) data unit that conforms to a second format and is for transmitting phy control information is generated. Generating the phy data unit includes generating a first portion of the phy data unit to indicate the phy data unit conforms to the second format, wherein the first portion of the phy data unit includes an stf spread with a second spread code different than the first spread code.
