No wireless after reconfig

asked 2022-04-15 22:27:01 +0000

I am using Kali linux on a raspberry pi 4, I tried to run a packet capture, it said permission denied, and to run `sudo dpkg-reconfigure wireshark-common' and hit yes, so I did, but now it has complete different filters that I have never seen such as Cisco remote capture, Random packet generator, SSH remote capture. How to I get my normal filters back? Strange way to solve an issue.

Those aren't "filters", those are capture devices - and they're so-called "extcap" devices, which run programs to capture traffic.

Are you saying that, before runningsudo dpkg-reconfigure wireshark-common, Wireshark showed your Wi-Fi adapter but you couldn't capture on it, because you got a permissions error (Linux doesn't allow unprivileged programs to open devices for capture), and didn't show the extcap devices, but, after running sudo dpkg-reconfigure wireshark-common, Wireshark doesn't show the Wi-Fi adapter but does show the extcap devices?
