  1. Hello. I have an HP Laptop I bought not too long ago running Windows 8 and I was wondering if there are windows drivers out there for my Qualcomm Atheros AR9485 802.11b/g/n WiFi Adapter that Wireshark could make use of to put the card into promiscuous or monitor mode. First of all is there a difference between promiscuous and monitor mode or are they two terms for the same thing? I am certain that my Atheros WiFi NIC has support for promiscuous mode built into the hardware, but most windows drivers don't implement it. It has been suggested that I try using Winpcap, but Winpcap is installed along with Wireshark and Wireshark on my Windows 8 laptop is unable to throw the card into promiscuous mode. If there are windows drivers that would allow me to do this that Wireshark can use that'd be great. If I have to download a different packet sniffer using its own custom drivers to get use of promiscuous mode that's alright I guess. I am aware, and I know, that most Linux distributions, such as Backtrack, can do it no problem, but if I could get it working under Windows 8 I would really like to. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
