Convert packet captures in 802.11 format to Ethernet format
A simple tool to convert packet captures in 802.11 format to Ethernet format. Lots of tools can only understand Ethernet link types, so I wrote this tool to convert captures to a format that they can understand. Note that this tool is really only useful for encrypted traffic.
Specify a wireless packet capture as an input file, and the name of the desired Ethernet-format output file. Wlan2eth will only convert data frames to the output file, which will likely result in a significantly smaller output packet capture file. Note that wlan2eth will only convert unencrypted frames.
