- One of the most popular tools…for capturing packets is Wireshark,…and it can do that on the Wi-Fi interface…just as it did on the wired interface.…I'll demonstrate this using Wireshark in Kali.…The first thing I need to do is set the adapter…into monitoring mode.…We're in monitor mode now.…So let's start Wireshark.…The first screen of Wireshark displays…any prior sessions in which packets were captured,…and the list of adapters…from which to choose for this capture session.…There's a moving packet trace by each interface.…
So that's a good guide as to which interface is active.…The interface we're interested in…is the monitoring mode adapter on wlan0mon.…I'll select this and press the blue shark fin…to start capturing.…While this is running, I'll connect my mobile…to the network and use it to switch…the WeMo power switch on and off.…I'll stop the capture now and we can take a look…at what we've captured.…The first thing to check is the wireless LAN summary.…I'll select Wireless from the menu and WLAN Traffic.…
