This is the sort of answer I was looking for. I thank you all for replying
and I am here to say that even with both transmits cut, I still cant
get this sniffer unit to sniff. I will check this 'link' detection out.
I think that it is a factor.
Just to keep triffic to a low, please reply to me and when I get something
that accually works, I will post back the summary to the list.
If ANYONE has done this, please email me.
Thanks for all the help,
