Hi All

We are having issues with one of our Meraki Wireless SSID's not allowing Apple iOS App Store updates etc, but works fine on Android and the Play store.

Can someone explain what the attached means please?

Thanks heaps

Each [TCP ACKed unseen segment] means that you captured a TCP ACK packet but did not capture the actual data that was received and acknowledged.

In other words, Apple's server at sent some data to the host at

The host at received that data and sends a TCP ACK back to Apple but you only captured that TCP ACK and not the data Apple sent.

This can happen when Wireshark or your capture device drops packets while capturing.
