Optimizing WLANPi Extcap with Frame Slice Option

Background Results from my previous post comparing WLANPi Extcap with Ekahau Capture + Sidekick, and a 9-year old iMAC convinced me that Ekahau Capture outperforms WLANPi Extcap considerably. By truncating data frame, possibly makes Sidekick's capture engine faster and more efficient. So what if we enable frame slicing on WLANPi Extcap, will that yield higher … Continue reading Optimizing WLANPi Extcap with Frame Slice Option

So I put WLANPi to test with other tools I had available. This experiment wasn't strictly scientific and … Continue reading How WLANPi EXT-Cap Fares Against Others?
