I am new to this area and hence the question.

I want to have Radiotap headers in the network data captures with Wireshark. I wonder if that is even possible in this case:

Configuration: Raspberry Pi 3 (Canakit), Combo wifi/bluetooth/FM: BCM43438 or CYW43438 (direct board-level integration with antenna), Raspbian Jessie OS

If not, do I need to get a different NIC? What are the options?


In order use Wireshark to capture packets,the interface has to be set in Monitor mode.

See if this posting helps

Does the BCM43438 WiFi chip in Raspberry Pi 3 support "monitor" mode
