I'm reading about 802.11, from IEEE's PDF, from page 1191, and in particularly I'm reading about TKIP. To decrypt and encrypt, you use a TSC (TKIP Sequence Counter) as you can see in these images:
How and from what is the TSC calculated?

TSC is just a counter used for anti-replay mechanism and it increases by 1 for every MPDU. Thus, its value depends on the sequence of the MPDU. I am not quite certain about its initial value but i suppose it depends on the implementation as usually.
