I am currently digging into WLAN management frames. For this, I wanted to capture management frames using few Linux utilities. So what I did so far is:
- Put my interface (
wlp2s0) in managed mode without being connected to an AP
- Create monitoring interface:
iw dev wlp2s0 interface add mon0 type monitor
ifconfig mon0 up
- Capture all frames on
mon0using wireshark without any filters
- Trigger active scanning using
iwlist wlp2s0 scan
What I get from this is a bunch of Beacon frames and each time I run the scan, I receive probe responses from the APs. But I don't see any probe requests.
What am I missing here?
