I am trying to experiment with CommView for Wifi. When I start searching for devices their are separated in channels.

I click on the one I want and then Capture. As I see the program is capturing the whole channel, not only the one wifi I want.

This leads to tremendous lost time because of low packets captured. So my question is, is there any way to make it possible to capture only one wifi instead of all the wifi in the channel ?

Are you asking how to use "filters" (aka "rules")? – sawdust Sep 12 '11 at 7:43
@sawdust maybe, I don't know... – Xalloumokkelos Sep 12 '11 at 13:40

You should setup a rule to capture packets based on the MAC address of the WiFi access point you're interested in.
