Capturing Data for Wireless Analysis
About 802.11
You can use Omnipeek and the Windows Capture Engine to capture and monitor 802.11 WLAN traffic on your network. A supported wireless adapter must be selected as the capture or monitor adapter, and the adapter must have the appropriate LiveAction wireless driver installed. Check the Readme in the driver folder (for example, C:\Program Files\LiveAction\Omnipeek\Driver) for installation instructions. You can also download the appropriate drivers from See also System requirements and Supported adapters for additional information on wireless adapters and driver requirements.
IMPORTANT: Changes made to the settings of a particular adapter are applied whenever that adapter is selected as the capture or monitor adapter. Changes made to the channel value for an adapter being used in multiple captures are globally applied to all captures.
