Wireshark --- Promiscuous Mode --- WPA

view full story

http://www.backtrack-linux.org – I'm currently working on the development of an embedded systems device that communicates with the LAN over wifi (it has a simple wifi module on the board that can connect to a WEP or WPA network). I've been using Wireshark on my workstation PC to monitor the traffic going back and forth between hosts on the LAN (in promiscuous mode of course) so I can see all Ethernet frames. Now I've reached a development stage of moving on to testing on a WPA network. I've opened up Wireshark and set it to promiscuous mode... but I can't see other people's frames! I can only see broadcast frames and unicas (HowTos)
