Wireshark and Broadband Cards


#1

I use a verizon broadband card to access the internet, from my laptop. I noticed if I try to use wireshark (or any tool like it) it will not be able to capture any traffic. The card can’t even be recognized. Does anyone know how you can use these tools with a broadband card?

Let’s begin with which OS you are running Wireshark on…
Is it Windows, OS X, or Linux?

I am running windows Vista

Would you happen to know the brand/model of your card? I don’t think Verizon makes their own cards…?

Verizon calls it their V740, but it is made by qualcomm (Express card 34, 3G CDMA). Hope this helps. I have been struggling with this issue for a while
