Dear Sirs,

My adapter does not support "monitor" mode and therefore I cannot capture the beacon packets and the association of a client to an AP to join a LAN.

Is this something I could request from you? I basically want to see PC A detect the wifi and join the network.

Thank you in advance.

If you want some sample traces google for "sample trace files" and proceed to the links, e.g. http://wiki.wireshark.org/SampleCaptures

If you wanna have a sample 802.11 client handshake trace including beacon frame, probe, auth, and association - there are some nice examples on aircrack-ng.

Try http://download.aircrack-ng.org/wiki-files/other/wpa.full.cap as an example
