Actually I am looking at it. But it shows only my local interfaces. –  JSR May 9 '12 at 8:58
@JSR: See Lucas' answer. It is possible, but you need a suitable WiFi adapter. I recall the wireshark website covers this subject. –  RedGrittyBrick May 9 '12 at 9:01
I have Motorola SBG901. Does it have some inbuilt support for this. –  JSR May 9 '12 at 9:07
@JSR - Check the Wireshark website. –  Ramhound May 9 '12 at 12:08
Unfortunately I am not able to find. Can someone point me to correct link? Device in my case is iphone. –  JSR May 10 '12 at 2:52

Yes it is possible, you can do this:

get a WIFI antenna that is capable of putting itself in monitoring mode and then use wireshark/tshark to analyze and capture data.
