You can grab qbextract from
http://www.willhackforsushi.com/code/qbextract.tgz. It reads from an
802.11 packet capture and searched for the 802.2 type for QuickBridge
encapsulated data packets, rewriting them with a standard IP 802.2
header to an output packet capture.

QuickBridge systems can operating at a variety of different frequencies,
though some operate at 2.4 GHz using 802.11-style modulation and framing
(this is where qbextract can be useful). Search for the string
"OR_WORP" in the packet capture; if present, you can use qbextract to
extract out the IP packets.
