Cannot use my Bluefruit LE sniffer firmware v2 with wireshar

by Tomaks on Fri Sep 04, 2020 10:27 am

Hello,

I bought a Bluefruit LE sniffer firmware v2 today. I installed all drivers (VCM and FTDI) on my Mac.
I cannot be able to detect my device on Wireshark and I am a bit borred :S
It seems that steps V2 firmware doesn't work properly.

dose anyone have any solution? I am really stuck :/

Hi Tomaks,

I've seen a few threads in the forums of other OSX users having issues with various releases of Wireshark. What version are you running? The latest release I have seen is 3.2.6, but I've seen Mac users go back to version 2.4.16.

Finally, signs of life! I'm still using Wireshark 2.4.16. The Nordic nRF sniffer guide v 2.2 describes, on p 7, updating the profiles preference folder. That is not part of the zip file beta 1 but it is in beta 3 at

On a related note I've also seen nrf_sniffer.py working on OSX with some work around.
