Hello Yukino, 

 

Thank you for posting on the Intel® communities.   

 

In order to better assist you, please provide the following: 

 

1. Can you confirm what are you trying to accomplish? Are you looking to administrate a network at some level?  

2. Would you like to capture beacon frames only or other types of packets also? Is this for Wi-Fi 6 only? Please include more details.  

3. To have all information, can you fill the "Intel-Wireless-Customer-Checklist" document attached? You can skip all the personal information and just provide the issue and system details. 

4. Additionally, run the Intel® System Support Utility (Intel® SSU) and attach the report generated:  

  • Open the application, check the "Everything" box, and click on "Scan" to see the system and device information. By default, Intel® SSU will take you to the "Summary View".   
  • Click on the menu where it says "Summary" to change to "Detailed View".   
  • To save your scan, click on "Next", then "Save".   
  • Use the option under the reply window to attach the report to the thread (Drag and drop here or browse files to attach).  

 

Regards,

Have you looked at or tried Wire Shark? That thing is amazing at what it can capture.

Hello Yukino,  

 

After double-checking this internally, we noticed that Intel does not have a tool to make this type of network captures. You may want to consider checking in different networking specialized forums for further help. 

 

You can consult with Microsoft* to see if at the Operating System (OS) level they may have a tool like this. 

 

On the other hand, maybe your router/AP manufacturer can help you with a similar feature from their side. 

 

I will proceed to close this inquiry. If you have any additional questions, please submit a new thread as this one will no longer be monitored by Intel.  

 

Regards,
