Optionally, you can specify additional channels with a different dwell time for each channel. Promiscuous mode is, in theory, possible on many Traffic will only be sent to or received from that channel. I also never use a capture filter because I like to make sure that I’m capturing all of the frames over the air.

If you’re trying to capture network traffic between processes running on the machine running Wireshark or TShark, i. Here is an example. If you have the list of supported adapters in your web page please direct us to the link.

If the scanning duration also called dwell time is set to a small value then the adapter will likely miss frames related to the roaming and authentication exchange because it hops away aigcap a different channel before the roam completes. The selection of a supported wireless adapter model for use with Wireshark can be tricky. It sees my wireless interfaces as “Microsoft”. On some platforms, such as FreeBSD, you may be able to capture non-data packets, and see
