8 Advanced things with Acrylic Wi-Fi Professional

We continue with functional articles about Acrylic Wi-Fi. If we have seen 9 basic things to do with Acrylic Wi-Fi, now we continue with some more advanced features.

  1. Selection of network interfaces: It is possible to capture with special cards such as Airpcap or any WiFi card using the WLAN NDIS driver to capture WiFi traffic. There is a selector which indicates available devices.

  2. Traffic Viewer: Acrylic Wi-Fi includes a viewer to view details of WiFi traffic received at all times. This viewer processes a large number of WiFi packets and displays advanced details; to activate it you must press the Enable button.

  3. Pcap: Acrylic Wi-Fi uses the pcap format, compatible with market tools like Wireshark and Aircrack to read and store information from WiFi networks. When stopping a monitoring, Acrylic Wi-Fi asks if you want to save the packets to a pcap file. These files can then be opened through the menu: File > Open Pcap File.

  4. Using GPS: If you have a compatible GPS device you can configure it on Acrylic Wi-Fi in order that all of the measurements are stored referencing their position longitude and latitude. This information will allow us to represent the information later.

  5. Generating KML and KMZ maps: In the tools menu there is an option called “pcap to KML” that can process GPS measurements made with a .pcap file of Acrylic Wi-Fi and display the information in Google maps.

  6. Generating WPS keys and passwords: Password generation is done with scripts developed on c# and can be created and edited from the script editor. WPS PIN is a mechanism that allows you to connect to a network with a numerical code without knowing the password. As with passwords, it is sometimes possible to identify which is the value of the PIN using an ISP or a manufacturer router.
