Hi, I have done some research in this but don't seem to be getting anywhere.
I have a Dell e1505 running the Broadcom 43xx Chipset driver(Restricted not NDISWrapper). It's got a 1390 WLAN minicard which works wonderfully, so does the wired card.
This is a fresh install of Ubuntu and everything works, but when I use Wireshark and Driftnet, it doesn't seem to go into promiscuous mode.
Driftnet shows only what I browse, Wireshark shows no HTTP traffic other than from this PC, but shows CUPS, ARP, etc. from other PCs.
I have tried putting my wireless(eth1) into promiscuous mode with:
I have changed the modes to monitor as well with:
sudo ifconfig eth1 mode promisc
Anyway, I messed around with the modes and read up a little about iwconfig but nothing seems to have any effect.
sudo iwconfig eth1 mode monitor
I saw a few sites claiming that the broadcom driver supports promiscuous mode, so I think I'm okay there.
Anyway, that's where I'm at.
Any help is appreciated.
