I actually use both methods in succession, but feel free to find a aidpcap that works for you. In the example packet capture, these include frame numbers 48, 49, and There are a couple of different methods to approach filtering to identify and analyze wireless roaming events that I recommend.
This article is part 4 in the Wi-Fi roaming analysis series.
Hope this is helpful to someone. But I always like to capture everything!
In the ‘Basic Configuration’ section below you should see a greyed-out list of channels that the adapters are currently set to use. Post as a guest Name. If these channels need to be changed, select each individual interface from the list and configure the channel.

This usually requires the Wi-Fi adapter to be disconnected from the network. Andrew April 23, at 5: The selection of a supported wireless adapter model for use with Wireshark can be tricky. If you want to test your wireless adapter if it supports injection airpcao not, you can use the aireplay-ng which is part of the aircrack-ng suite of tools.
Andrew, thanks for the write up and I’m looking forward to your write up on Omnipeek I’m evaluating whether to go with Wireshark or Omnipeek at the moment. This is because differences exist between operating system platforms which may prevent the ability to capture all wireless frames over the air.
Baseline current client roaming performance Analyze gaps between current network performance and application requirements Identify opportunities to improve and optimize performance Implement changes to infrastructure and client devices to optimize performance Take more active control to ensure network performance matches desired service levels Throughout this blog post and the next, I will be using actual roaming events that I captured with my iPhone as an example.

Scanning between channels with a single adapter is not sufficient because the adapter will miss frames transmitted on alternate channels. If you’re attempting to monitor at some other point, you might clarify?
Looks sightly different in 1. Therefore, by positioning the analyzer nearest the client s you increase the likelihood of successfully receiving all frames both from and to those clients.

Scott January 11, at 2: Wireshark Colored Frame List. Hi Scott, Thanks for the feedback.
Sign up using Facebook. Wi-Fi Roaming Analysis Series: For Microsoft Network Monitoryou won’t need and can’t use an AirPcap adapter; however, you will need Windows Vista or later, and an adapter that supports “Native Wi-Fi” I don’t know how to determine whether your laptop’s adapter does other than downloading Network Monitor and installing it and trying it.
I don’t have any issues seeing the images on either Chrome or Safari. Use Windows with AirPcap adapter s. You can find further details about the injection test procedure at aircrack-ng injection test page. This will help prevent you from subsequently plugging them into a different USB slot causing device discovery and driver installation again by Windows.
Are you capturing on the router? I also never use a capture filter because I like to make sure that I’m capturing all of the frames over the air. On a related note, to analyze the efficiency of wireless communications with a protocol analyzer, focus on the Wi-Fi retransmission rate rather than looking at FCS error rates since the FCS rate can be inflated simply because the analyzer workstation is not able to successfully decode all the wireless frames that it can hear in the environment.
