Is wireless network having common interface to all network pcs? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello friends,

    As i am developing packets capture for wireless network i want to know that , Is wireless network having common interface to all network pcs?

    Currently i am connected with LAN having network adapter "Intel(R) PRO/100 VE network connection".

    when i bind socket to this interface i get only packets which come across "Local interface",unable to get packets from remote interface.

    So i thought "Wireless Network Adapter" sharing with all network pcs and all packets come across "Single Network Adapter",so that i capture all packets within network premises.

    Please suggest, am i on right way? or if having another solution.

    Thanks in advanced

    This is not really the best place for this sort of question - you'd be better asking it in one of the MSDN forums, or in TechNet forums..
    http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-gb/whatforum/threads - would be a good place to start with in MSDN - at least someone could point you in the right direction from there.
