I know that this card allows you to see vlan tags: CNet CNF401

This is an older card 10/100 but it works.

Subject: [Wireshark-users] VLAN Tags?


I am connecting to and monitoring a port on a managed VLAN switch from a Windows Vista machine.


Is there any way to capture the VLAN tags? I presume this may depend on the Ethernet nic and driver. Is there a device/driver that I need to get to support this?


I don’t actually know if the monitoring port delivers the VLAN tags of the packets it is monitoring. The switch is a ProCurve 2600-8-PWR. Anybody know?


I do know that Wireshark can parse these. I used to capture vlan tags when I was watching a VLAN being bridged across 802.11 with WDC.


Cheers, Bob
