The PCAP specification is the file format used to store wireless network traffic captures from network analyzers (sniffers), and this format is supported by popular tools such as Wireshark and winpcap compatible software. Acrylic also supports WiFi pcap files.

A WiFi traffic capture saved as a pcap file can be opened on Acrylic WiFi Professional for the collected data to be analyzed under a WiFi monitoring, and the software will then analyze WiFi access point and individual station behavior. For a more detailed capture, it is recommended to have Monitor Mode enabled.

WiFi packets will show on the WiFi sniffer window (packet viewer) as well as on the other program windows.
