I'm researching a little into wireless troubleshooting and I'm starting to get a little confused about the differences between several modes available on Cisco access points. The ones I'm looking at are:
- monitor mode
- sniffer mode
- scanner mode
I take it some allow client connections and some do not. And some look at all channels and some do not. Is sniffer mode and scanner mode the same thing?
Also... some Cisco pages say that sniffer mode can only be used with Airopeek. But a Cisco Press book I'm reading says it operates with an Omnipeak, Airmagnet, or Wireshark server. Which is correct? Is there a Wireshark server?
