Wireshark-users: Re: [Wireshark-users] Mac OSX new MacBook Pro
I see the same behavior on my MacBook Pro.

I spoke with Apple a couple times, and they were able to reproduce the problem with tcpdump on an Intel machine. They confirmed it's a bug, but said they "don't support command-line utilities", and finished off saying that they may or may not investigate it further.

So is there a solution for running wireshark without dropping the connection? I realize this isn't a wireshark problem, pre se, but is there a workaround anyone has had luck with?

Thank you Guy

Yes you are correct, sudo tcpdump does also drop the connection on
en1 as it starts capturing on en0, weird
Tshark  version is the current MacPorts - TShark 0.99.3a

Just rebuilding svn so I can grab a source...  ;-)

I can capture packets and remain attached to my wireless running

sudo tcpdunp -i en1

When I run

sudo tshark -i en1

It immediately drops the wireless.
