Hi,

First post here, when I try to use wireshark 1.12.3, it keeps showing this message, though I can use internet without any issue, just curious about what this actually means? And after restarting my system, it will show 60 192.168.X.X is as XX:XX:XX:XX:XX, I guess this is more like normal, right? Is there anything wrong? Any help would be appreciated.

BR, Kai

This is an ARP conversation, and is perfectly normal.

Thanks for quick reply.

What message I keep having is "60 Who has 192.168.1.2? Tell 192.168.X.XX", I won't get "60 192.168.X.X is as XX:XX:XX:XX:XX" until I restart my system, otherwise it just keeps coming out "60 Who has 192.168.1.2? Tell 192.168.X.XX"...Is it also normal that they need to keep communicating with "60 Who has 192.168.1.2? Tell 192.168.X.XX"? Again, thank you very much.

Standard ARP behaviour, the machine at 192.68.x.x is asking if anyone has IP 192.168.1.2 as either:

a. It wants to send a message to that IP and needs to know the MAC address. b. It's using gratuitous ARP for various other reasons.
