Say it isn't true!
For the first time in the world (for me) I can put a Wi-Fi interface on a Windows 10 machine into Monitor mode!!!!!
I know, this is boring to a few of you because you have been capable of this. You are spoiled. You are lucky.
But today - all that changed. First, I updated my self to the latest version of npcap (v1.30). You can get that right here:
Of course I am running the latest version of Wireshark:
Then, I installed an external Wireless adapter that I know supports Monitor Mode (I previously tested this in Linux). So now I have two wireless adapters:
Wi-Fi2 is the one I am interested in.
Now - let's fire up Wireshark, and then select Capture> Options:
Look at that! The Wi-Fi2 interface has the Monitor Mode check box!!!! Picture me doing a happy dance!
So Let's select it, and capture:
Do we have 802.11 traffic????
Much more happy dancing!
So thankful to the great folks at nmap and npcap, and Wireshark, of course.
Such a long time coming.
