Hi all,

I have two laptop which are set to ad-hoc mode and ping from one laptop to
another. Also, I have a third laptop which is set to monitor mode in order
to sniff all traffic between laptops in ad-hoc mode. My problem is that
running ethereal in the third laptop not capture data traffic (ping packets)
and only capture 802.11 management frames. I had tried to use monitor mode 2
and 3 but the problem is the same.

Please, someone tell me how should configure my laptops in order to capture
simultaneously both data packets and 802.11 management frames?

Thanks in advance,
