If you don't have a remote sensor, you can still do packet captures on one or more channels using external USB Wi-Fi adapters. However, because we can't use external adapters natively as we do with the Mac's built-in Wi-Fi adapter, we need EASE (External Adapter Support Environment).

For years, packet capturing in the Mac using the built-in Wi-Fi adapter has always worked reliably out of the box, and it is one of the main reasons many Wi-Fi professionals love their Macs to do their jobs. Unfortunately, packet capturing is now broken in the new M1 Mac. 

Multi-channel captures in Airtool 2

Airtool 2 makes it possible to perform affordable, multi-channel captures using multiple remote sensors and Wi-Fi adapters. As each source (a sensor/interface combination) sends captured packets back, Airtool 2 automatically merges them to generate a single capture file or an aggregated live capture in Wireshark.
