I'm trying to monitor my wireless network but I can't see the interface in the capture options.
Network Utility lists it as active, and it is active under the Preferences -> Network pane.
Am I missing something?
I've just changed the ownership of /dev/bpf* to the same user as WireShark and all the interfaces are now available including firewire and wireless.
I was relying on accessing /dev/bpf* through group privileges that had rw- but it doesn't seem to like this.
For prosperity... Use an admin account to run wireshark and give the /dev/bpf* files the same user with rw- privileges.
Confirmed that it is now working. Thanks for your help.
