I am new to wireshark and i got this problem: My wireless wi-fi card's monitor mode has worked before and successfully gone into "Full" monitor access and detected packets but, After restarting in the middle of a session (I turned it back to managed before restart). It worked fine but after turning on monitor mode. It never detected a single packet. And after turning it back to managed, It detected no networks. It only returns to normal after a restart. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

~Sincerely, Proto.
