WIFI USB cards alternative to Airpcap

Looking for an Airpcap alternative? Up until the release of Acrylic Wi-Fi, capturing WiFi traffic on Windows was only available for those who could buy fairly expensive hardware, such as an Airpcap card. Therefore an Airpcap alternative was necessary.

There are several tools on the market, mostly free as Wireshark, that can capture WiFi on Windows only if hardware such as an Airpcap card is available.

At Acrylic Wi-Fi we have developed an alternative to AirPCAP, which is the next generation of sniffers to capture traffic in the latest 802.11ac standards.

Acrylic Wi-Fi Sniffer

We have recently launched a new tool that represents a radical evolution in the capture of WiFi traffic, previously done with Airpcap cards in Windows. Using our WiFi Sniffer you can obtain all the information provided by AirPCAP cards including SNR values, and additionally, capture all traffic transmitted on 802.11ac networks in all channel widths (20/40/80/160Mhz).

The list of compatible cards is as follows:

Channel width (MHz)
Bandwidth (GHz)

80
160
