In one aspect, the slave access point estimates synchronizing information for the joint transmission, according to the information for the joint transmission. In one aspect, during a second time period after the first time period, the master access point transmits a portion of a steered frame to a station device. In one aspect, the slave access point transmits, during the second time period, the portion of the steered frame to the station device, based on the synchronizing information. In one aspect, the station device decodes the portion of the steered frame to obtain content data in the portion of the steered frame.
