I have an Intel 4965agn wireless card and I'm running Back|Track 4 Final. I know I can put the card into monitor mode and I have to use wpa_supplicant to fake auth. What I want to know and haven't been able to find out from searching is whether promiscuous mode works correctly.
I have 2 laptops both on my wireless network and I simply want to monitor all network traffic on my network using the 4965agn laptop. I start Wireshark and begin monitoring (promiscuous mode option checked) on wlan0 and I get no traffic from the other laptop (even though I'm surfing the web from it) other than packets with a protocol of LLC, 0x054, or SNA.
What hoops do I have to jump through to get this to work?
