Thanks Bob but a WPA Hacker isn't what im looking for here.
looking to use Wireshark in Permiscuous / monitor mode, i know it can be done with the proper driver and is possible with Dell, but am not having any luck finding the right driver.

I didn't buy it as a hacker.

It does the mode you asked for. If you and others can't find the driver, then other devices like that one I noted will do the job.
