Hello, everyone!

I'm trying to change the interface that's being currently used by Tshark. The interface in used is Local Area Connection 2, but I'm using my wifi which is the one I'd like to use since I'm not connected through a wire. I can't manage the change that. It doesn't allow me to key any commands. And It is my understanding that first I need to select the wifi when Wireshark starts, which I've done.

I'm going nuts, if you can, please, give me a hand. :D

As a quick remark I'm using Windows. I cannot use Linux at the moment because I don't know how to use it, I don't know if that is a problem...

I take it that you are using Tshark even though you have mentioned, "I need to select the wifi when Wireshark starts..".

Have you tried this: tshark -i "WIFI INTERFACE" ?

Alternatively, you can do this: tshark -D . [This will list the index of the all the network interfaces; mark the wifi one -- say 2] tshark -i 2 ....
