I've just started using Wireshark and have successfully captured data to and from the machine that I'm capturing on.

I now have a more difficult problem. I need to debug the traffic between my tablet and my router. Specifically, the HTTP traffic. The tablet is wifi only, the router is, well wireless. I also have a laptop that's wireless that I can capture on as well as a hub.

I tried to capture on the laptop when it was wirelessly connected to the router and in promiscuous mode, but didn't see anything. Is there a way to do this, and how should I cable it up?

Since you are mainly interested in HTTP traffic, the easiest solution would be to install a packet capture app on the tablet. You can open the file in Wireshark afterwards.
