Can no longer capture traffic on M1

I have been using wireshark without problems on my macbook M1, but somehow I did something that made wireshark suddenly stop capturing any traffic. I don't remember what I did but there I was capturing traffic one minute, then trying out some options, and after that I never got Wireshark to show any packets any more. So this happened all in one sitting: from capturing to no longer capturing. Not even a reboot in between.

Since then (this happened a couple of weeks ago), I tried complete uninstall and reinstall (including CHModBPF uninstall/install) twice, but still no packets. In my start screen I see the traffic graph for my wifi interface, but whatever I try; no packets. TCPDump captures traffic OK. And I can read pcap files with wireshark without problems.

Any help appreciated

RESOLVED> this appears to be a very common issue and the internet is full of solutions:

Monitor mode should be off for the wifi adapter. Apparently this got switched from OFF to ON somehow.
