Can wireshark help me with my home wlan problem?
Cant login or post things on forums. Please post any new questions and answers at ask. One Answer:. Open capture dialog Choose Wifi Interface Then scroll to the right side until the column "Monitor Mode" appears double click the value in your interface row and choose enabled. Then click on the start button. There are no scroll bars so I did not see a monitor mode as an option. Your answer. Foo 2. So, when I run scapy, it shows iface as 'lo0' and it does not capture any packet. I have looked at a lot of answers regarding this, but most of them are for ubuntu and say that when you put your system in monitor mode, you get 'mon0' interface and then pass this to your scapy and sniff.
But in mac, I am not getting anything like the 'mon0', in fact all the interfaces goes inactive in monitor mode. Could some one please help me understand what is happening? PS: WireShark and Tcpdump work just fine in monitor mode and scapy too captures frames when not in monitor mode.
But I am interested in management frames, so I need scapy to capture those on monitor mode. I think you're looking for something like this: How can I put mac os x en1 interface into monitor mode to use with python3 scapy? I know this is a old question but I had the same problem. I'm unsure as to why en0 appears to be deactivated after running airportd en0 sniff 1 or airport sniff.

Use Terminal You can use the airport utility. Select your channel and start sniffing Allan Allan Followed your answer, I tried to put my WiFi Airport adapter into monitor mode by issuing this command in terminal: sudo airport en1 sniff 6 but I got something different. How could I upload the wifi log file for to let you know what has happened? I've uploaded the wifi log file to: pastebin. Just wondering if you saw my last message saying that my log file has been uploaded to Pastebin. What you have in pastebin is the standard error message from airport.
