Is it possible to analyse LTE packets using Wireshark. I'm having trouble using Wireshark to capture mobile LTE traffic. I ma using MacBook also and LTE modem.

Do I need specific configuration to capture LTE traffic on Wireshark. Or is it possible this, any idea.

By "LTE packets" do you mean "IP packets that happen to be transmitted over LTE" or do you mean "packets for the LTE protocols themselves"?

Hi @Guy Harris, thank you for your support. Yes I'm trying to capture LTE packets that are transmited from LTE modem. But I don't see any LTE protocol appeared in Wireshark Protocol list. Just other protocols like TCP, TLSv.1, ICMP, Http. I can't detect protocols like: rlc-lte, mac-lte, pdcpu-lte.
