Is it possible to capture 802.11 frames when the card is in managed
mode? Because i want to capture every packet of the whole process from
attaching of STA with first AP and then roaming to 2nd AP and 3rd AP...
In ethereal if the card is in managed mode, it only allows to capture
Ethernet frames, and only if the card is in monitor mode then it allows
you to capture 802.11 frames. So this means usually one needs 11 or 13
cards in monitor mode one on each channel to capture with 100 percent
accuracy without missing a single frame.
So I am wondering is there any option, through which i get 802.11 frames
in ethereal when the card is in manged mode?
