i am trying to work on my homework on my Mac. It is showing mac address instead of ipv4 address like this. Everyone else who uses the same file are showing ipv4 address. I am wondering if anyone can show me how to do it.

for example ,it is showing

Frame 14: 70 bytes on wire (560 bits), 70 bytes captured (560 bits)
Ethernet II, Src: Cisco-Li_e3:e9:8d (00:16:b6:e3:e9:8d)**, Dst: Apple_ac:6c:26 (10:9a:dd:ac:6c:26)
Data (56 bytes)

That probably isn't an IPv4 packet; if it's not an IPv4 packet, it doesn't have an IPv4 source or destination.

If you open up the "Ethernet II" line, what does it show below the "Destination" and "Source" lines? Does it show a "Type" line? If so, what does the "Type" line say?
