Wireshark-dev: [Wireshark-dev] data link type option in wireshark
Date: Wed, 18 Aug 2010 11:58:31 +0530



I have a query on data link type option in Wireshark.

While decoding packets in Wireshark, we have an option to select the data link type (ex. Ethernet) for decoding the plug-ins. Now my question is, is it possible to decode the protocols directly without data link?   

My idea is if Wireshark can directly decode plug-ins with out a common data link type, it will be faster. Please share any ideas on this?
