AirPcap Nx is designed to meet all of your 802.11 diagnostic needs, offering a host of features unrivaled in today's WLAN marketplace

AirPcap Nx continues the tradition of the AirPcap Family by providing a USB-based and easy-to-deploy packet capture and injection solution for the Windows platform. This unique dual-band offering supports packet capture and injection for 802.11n, 802.11a/b/g legacy modes, and the 4.9 GHz US Public safety channels, all with full Wireshark® integration. It also features 2 x 2 MIMO with two internal antennas. In addition to the internal antennas, AirPcap Nx has two integrated MC-Card connectors for optional external antennas to enhance performance in the most demanding environments.

802.11n is an exciting new technology, but it introduces many potential problems due to its complexity and the need for compatibility with existing 802.11b, a, and g networks. With AirPcap Nx you get complete visibility into your 802.11a/b/g/n wireless networks. This includes general 802.11 information such as data, management, and control frames along with 802.11n-specific information such as HT information, aggregate MPDUs, and aggregate MSDUs.


AirPcap Nx replaces the AirPcap N 32bit CardBus adapter, providing advanced technology and additional capabilities that include:

  • 802.11n traffic capture on 20MHz and 40 MHz channels
  • 802.11a, b, g packet capture on 20MHz channels
  • 802.11a, b, g, and n packet injection at all rates
  • Detailed decoding of control, management, and data frames in Wireshark, including A-MSDUs, A-MPDUs, and HT information
  • Per-packet radio information
  • Microsecond timestamp resolution
  • Two internal antennas and two integrated MC-Card connectors for optional external antennas
  • Support for 2x2 MIMO
  • Monitor multiple channels simultaneously and capture into a single, merged trace file using multiple AirPcap Nx adapters and CACE's exclusive multi-channel aggregation technology
  • Full integration with Wireshark and CACE Pilot™ for complete WLAN traffic analysis, visualization, drill-down, and reporting
  • USB host interface provides for portability and flexibility in deployment
  • AirPcap and WinPcap APIs are provided for creation or extension of your own 802.11n testing and diagnostic tools

AirPcap Nx 3-Pack

AirPcap Nx is available as a 3-Pack to facilitate simultaneous multi-channel capture and traffic aggregation. The 3-Pack let's you simultaneously monitor 3 different channels and allows you to capture each channel into separate trace file. Additionally, AirPcap Nx software provides a merge of the multichannel capture into a single trace file. These features are fully integrated with Wireshark and CACE Pilot thereby enhancing your troubleshooting effectiveness in multichannel environments. Naturally, the more AirPcap adapters you have, the more channels you will be able to capture simultaneously. When you purchase an Nx 3-Pack, you receive:

  • 3 AirPcap Nx (capture and transmit) adapters with custom Windows driver,
