How do I collect wlan conversation statistic using tshark? And not connected (authenticated) to the (wireless) LAN, in promiscuous mode. Tried: tshark -qz conv,wlan but wlan is not supported with tshark.
wlan is supported with wireshark... wireshark -k -i 1 -a duration:20 -z conv,wlan but the statistic can not be captured (or piped) to a file. If connected to wlan or lan, then following works well... tshark -qz conv,eth I suspect I need to build a version of tshark that supports wlan? Not a great solution for me.
Any thoughts?

File a bug noting that some, but not all, of the conv, taps supported by Wireshark are supported by TShark.
