this is probably a non-LEDE-related question, but I decided to ask this question here: is there a way to mirror wireless traffic to an ethernet port?
Background: currently I am into VOIP. And try to learn about proper configuration, try to pentest my internal asterisk configuration using wireshark, kali and my LEDE router as the central unit on which asterisk is running. And I want to monitor my complete network traffic.
Tried: use the mirror option in switch configuration (cpu -> free LAN port), but found out, that except broadcasts only wired traffic is mirrored. I suspect this being a general networking problem (wireless traffic is not controlled by the switch, although VLANs are defined here). Conveniently this also monitors my WAN traffic, but I didn't find an easy way to monitor WLAN-only devices like smartphones and such. Possible solution would be: turn off internal wireless AP and use an external AP and connect it via trunk to one of the LAN ports (I use more than one VLAN for wireless).
Also tried to use wireshark in promiscuous mode, but found out, that none of my wireless client adapters seem to support this mode.
Is there an easy way to internally route wireless traffic through the internal switch, besides using two LAN ports, configure them properly and use an external cable to connect them? There are no free ports left for this in my current configuration besides the mirror port I use for monitoring.
