IMO, when wireless is sending data - it checks if data received is correct one, if not then retry occurs and that frame is sent again. that value shows - how many retries will occur when this frame is considered lost.

if i am wrong feel free to correct me

The algorithm has to be complexer as you have different speeds to (re-)transmit.
Yes it would be very interesting to hear the exact behaviour of an AP sending
data and what this parameter does exactly.

I have often wondered this.
How much info MT is given and how much thay are allowed to give us :-)
