Keep in mind that AP's act as layer 2 devices (ie. a switch), so in promisc mode, you wouldn't see traffic that isn't broadcast, multicast or destined for your specific device.No matter what i do with wireshark or tcpdump i still cant see anything from my other computer ... well unless i ping it lol
Does it need to be down before i can make the switch? Also is there a problem with the mac drivers and promisc that anyone know about?
For a test, do a broadcast ping from another connected box. You should see it show up in wireshark on the box you have promisc mode on (if your interface is connected to the same AP).
I know of no driver problem. I tested this using an Alfa on BT4.
