Promiscious mode wifi capture on iMac with Atheros 5416

Sound a old hardware, but as it is not the first time I have issue to dump (tcpdump or wireshark) wifi connection on promiscuous mode, I prefer to write it once of all … It is not working !!!

If any of you have a solution to make it works, I’ll be happy to update this post. For the others, I expect you will loss less time searching and trying.

I’ve try to change the rights on the /dev/bfp* devices

I’ve try to use tcpdump -i en1 host xx.xx.xx.xx instead of wireshark

And at the end, I finally just got the broadcast traffic and the local traffic.
