    Default Merging .cap data logs. from 2 files to 1 file

    Hi, I have been trying to collect packets with this rubbish dell 1390 wifi card, well its fine but from 2 minutes to 36 hours the wifi card goes down and packet collection stop and the only way to restart collection is to restart the computer.

    I have backed up the current collection of 22k #data onto my USB stick but as I start my secound set of data collection I need to know that I can merge the two or more files to generate the required amount of packets.

    maybee it can be done by specifying multiple data sources on aircrack, I dont know..

    hope you can help

    regards, Reidy-

    36 hours to collect packets is a really long time. I mean it's no wonder the wifi card has problems. You might want to look into what you are doing. I would suggest aircrack-ng documentation as a starting point. As for merging caps files yes they can be. Look into tcpsplice, mergecap, and or wireshark. On mergecap it would look like the following
    Code:
    root@dorkness:~# mergecap *.pcap -w /path/to/output/dir/name.pcap

    well, that just goes to show you that things are a lot more like they used to be than they are now.

    I think wireshark can merge.

    Might be a good idea before you go about doing something to learn what it is you are trying to do. If you would do that then I bet you would know if your cards can or can not inject.

    Yeah I pretty much stated that in my first response.
    Might want to read the previous posts before responding.
