Is it possible to capture 802.11 control and management frames under STA mode using NDIS filter? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a NDIS Light-weight Filter driver. It's a monitoring driver and it can successfully see the 802.11 data frames (using Wireshark) under my Win10 host.

    However, I didn't see any 802.11 control or management frames, even I disconnect and reconnect to the AP.

    I didn't manually change any Wi-Fi mode, so I believe it's the default STA mode.

    I wonder if this behavior is expected? If yes, how to make a NDIS filter see 802.11 control and management frames? Thanks!
