It is a pleasure for me to announce the release of a new product from
CACE Technologies: the AirPcap Wireless Capture Adapter for Windows.
This is our initial product announcement since Gerald Combs, the creator
of Wireshark (formerly Ethereal), joined CACE Technologies in May of
this year. AirPcap is the first Open Source friendly, affordable and
easy to deploy WLAN (802.11b/g) packet capture solution for the Windows
platform. AirPcap comes as a USB 2.0 adapter, and has been fully
integrated with Wireshark, WinDump and WinPcap. AirPcap enables Open
Source tools you already know well to analyze 802.11b/g wireless
traffic, including control frames, management frames and power
information. All of this can be done from your Windows laptop, with
minimal installation and configuration effort.
The AirPcap solution is a good example of the CACE Technologies
philosophy: we invest in continuous improvements to our Open Source
tools, and at the same time provide individual and commercial users with
products that enhance the scope of the usefulness of these tools.

I hope that AirPcap will be a useful aid as you work on designing,
troubleshooting and maintaining the security of your wireless networks.
and the CACE Technologies team
