Hello there, i would like to know if there is any way to capture cellphone and tablet packets using wireshark. Im running wireshark on win7, and both my cellphone (android) and my tablet (ipad) are connected to the same wifi as my computer. However, i only see my computer's packets and overal activity. Everytime i use my ipad or cellphone, wireshark indicates: bogus IP header length.

Thanks in Advance
