View Full Version : [ubuntu] Loosing connection when using Wireshark

September 12th, 2011, 03:03 PM
Hello. I am running Ubuntu 11.04 64-bit, and I have to use wireshark for one of my school subjects. When I run Wireshark for a few minutes, I suddenly loose connection. All I see in wireshark are requests with the ARP protocol no other packages seem to enter my computer, and no web applications work (though strangely, applications such as tinychat don't register me being offline, and I seem to still have a physical connection with my router). I am using WLAN. I am not running wireshark as root, but I did something with usergroups that allows me to sniff packages even without running it as root.
Does anyone know what might be the problem?
