i've managed to capture on a macbook traffic from an ipad (with a virtual interface mounted thanks to xcode) but it's layer 4 (fake Ethernet capture). I've also managed to capture layer 2 from the macbook after editing preferences on the wifi interface.

But i fail to modify preferences on the rvi0 interface.

Is it possible?

Thank you.

So it seems impossible but in monitor mode Wiresark is able to capture layer2. After filtering, it's OK.
