When running packet capture to wireshark has anyone seen this error?
For us this is under Firmware ZoneFlex 1100 9.6.1.0.15 MR Release.

The error reads
--browser dialogue box--

The page at https://192.168.2.3 says:

AP [mac address] due to wlan101: invalid wlan interface name
can not start capturing wireless packets

--end of dialogue--

The Two SSIDs are FrogmoreWMS and MAF_Guest

Is your AP single or dual-band?

Oh why? So I am guessing now that Wireshark packet capture, as implemented into the ZD, is designed to look for two radios?

Would you have any idea how would I prevent this error?
