    I looked around google and there seems to be a problem with running tcpdump/ethereal/wireshark/dsniff and the like over wireless. I have a macbook (coreduo), and any time I try to start wireshark or dsniff I lose my wireless association. Has anyone come up with a solution or workaround? With dsniff after it starts I just re-associate with the AP, but with arpspoof it times out after like 10 seconds which isn't enough time to re-associate. Either way, let me know.

    use tcpdump in the terminal to capture the packets, then use your program of choice to read the dumped file.

    sudo tcpdump -i en1 -w foo.qq

    foo being the name of the file you want to create

    With tcpdump/dsniff it isn't a problem because they don't time out. I can re-associate with the AP right away. With arpspoof, it times out after a few seconds so I can't. But still, thanks for the suggestion.
