How to Purchase CommView for WiFi

Searching Packets

To find packets matching a specific text or address, use the Find dialog (Search => Find Packet). Enter a search string, select the type of entered information (String or Hex), and then click Find Next. The program will search for packets that match the search criterion and display them on the Packets tab.

You can enter text as a string, hexadecimal value, MAC or IP address. Text string search will be performed in ASCII and Unicode (UTF-8 and UTF-16) formats. A hex string should be used when you want to enter non-printable characters: just type in the hexadecimal string, e.g. AD0A027804. Use of IPv6 addresses requires Windows XP or higher and that the IPv6 stack be installed.

Check Match Case for case-sensitive search. Check At offset to search for a string that begins at a certain offset. Note that the offset indicator is hexadecimal and zero-based (i.e. if you are looking for the first byte in the packet, the offset value is 0). You can also select a search direction, Up or Down.
