Is this just a problem with macbooks, or all intel based airport extreme's? I can't seem to get the one on my iMac purchased just last month to work, even after trying all steps in the wki.

I think iMac have Broadcom based airport (ioreg -l to check it), while macbook (at least recents) have Atheros based airport.

I finaly managed to make it work - I had (have to check if it is the only thing) to launch a tcpdump after starting capture :
the tcpdump turns en1 into promisc mode, which was missing

I actually understand this is exactly ticket #191(New MacBook capturing Packets but no Data), where it is said "Known issue. Not caused by anything we can help with a few lines of code, but we're working on it."

anyway to help ?
