Decoding Ethernet

this bothers me... why? because it seems to indicate that only ethernet is being 
sniffed and not tcp/ip...

something else that bothers me a bit is all the above indicating IPv6 and i'm 
sure you have IPv4 traffic... is it possible that your IPv4 traffic is not being 
looked at at all??

The -v option does show a lot of traffic going through.....

what kind of traffic? IPv4 or IPv6 or both?
