Yes, you ca get MAC addresses and BSSID/SSID with AirPcap, but you will need to write your own packet dissection code for it. You can look at the source code of Wireshark for that (and there are several other open source tools online that dissect 802.11 frames).

Have a nice day

Subject: [Winpcap-users] Get source and destination MAC and SSID

Dear All,

I am developing my final year project for degree. In our project, we need to capture the wireless packets using AirPcap and then get the source and destination address, and BSSID.

I am new to WinPcap. I had read the winpcap documentation online. However, nothing helpful.

Can I get the source MAC address, destination MAC address, and SSID of the packets captured by Airpcap with winpcap library?

Do I need to dissect the packet?

Can someone teach me?
