1 1. The apparatus of claim 10, wherein the processor is configured to insert at least one of:

an address of the first wireless device into the service discovery frame; and a service identification field into a service description attribute of the service discovery frame.

12. The apparatus of claim 1 1, wherein the processor is configured to insert at least one of an indication of the available service or a hash of the indication of the available service into a service information field of the service description attribute.

13. The apparatus of claim 10, further comprising a memory configured to cache the at least one parameter for a predetermined period of time, the processor configured to proceed with encapsulating and the transmitter configured to proceed with the transmitting when a query for the available service is received within the predetermined period of time from another wireless device configured to communicate according to the second wireless protocol.

14. The apparatus of claim 10, wherein:

the receiver is configured to receive a data packet associated with the available service from the first wireless device;
