Wireshark Wi-Fi traffic sniffing support across Operating Systems

Windows

Promiscuous mode

  • WinPcap supports promiscuous mode but drivers for Wi-Fi NICs usually don't =>  Wireshark using WinPcap can't capture packets from Wi-Fi NIC in promiscuous mode on Windows

Monitor mode

  • WinPcap does not support monitor mode => Wireshark using WinPcap can't capture packets from Wi-Fi NIC in monitor mode on Windows 
  • Acrylic NDIS driver supports monitor mode => Wireshark + AirPcap/WiFi USB card +Acrylic NDIS driver is able to capture packets in monitor mode

Linux

Promiscuous mode

  • libpcap supports promiscuous mode => Wireshark can capture packets from Wi-Fi NIC in promiscuous mode on Unix

Monitor mode

  • libpcap supports monitor mode (on some flavors on Unix) => Wireshark can capture packets from Wi-Fi NIC in monitor mode on Unix

BE SMART AND BECOME RICH IN LESS THAN 3DAYS....It all depends on how fast 
you can be to get the new PROGRAMMED blank ATM card that is capable of
hacking into any ATM machine,anywhere in the world. I got to know about 
this BLANK ATM CARD when I was searching for job online about a month 
ago..It has really changed my life for good and now I can say I'm rich and 
I can never be poor again. The least money I get in a day with it is about 
$50,000.(fifty thousand USD) Every now and then I keeping pumping money 
into my account. Though is illegal,there is no risk of being caught 
,because it has been programmed in such a way that it is not traceable,it 
also has a technique that makes it impossible for the CCTVs to detect 
you..For details on how to get yours today, email the hackers on : (
atmmachinehackers1@gmail.com ). Tell your 
loved once too, and start to live large. That's the simple testimony of how 
my life changed for good...Love you all ...the email address again is ;
