Promiscuous Mode

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by Alasdair Baxter, Jan 17, 2005.

  1. I want to put my system into promiscuous mode. I am running Windows
    2000 and my network card is a Linksys LNE100TX Fast Ethernet
    Adapter(LNE100TX v4) and I use a Terayon cable modem.

    Anyone willing to assist?

  3. What are you trying to accomplish? Other than wireless cards, I haven't
    heard of putting a NIC into promiscuous mode in a long time.

    Disable your firewall - disable your AV - fire up every service you
    have. And don't do any service packs.

    Hit a few porn sites also.

    That'll make your machine as promiscuous as any B)

    If it's to monitor the cable link, there is not usually much to look at
    except DHCP and all the public ARPing. I found it's easier to run my CM
    through a repeater before the router.
    It's been a while since looking at this.

    Check the advanced properties for your network card driver.

    If it's not there, check the Linksys site for an alternative / beta /
    development driver that has promiscuous mode.

    Notmally it's a function of a packet sniffer like Ethereal/ Packet
    capture driver that issues the command, if the adapter supports it.
    To check if in promiscuous mode. From a cmd like run the utility

    The source code for WinPcap has the routing to set promiscuous mode.

    You wouldn't have to rape it. Just offer to pay it, than murder it with a
    hammer afterwards.
