Advanced Troubleshooting

Easily collect the data you need to conduct advanced troubleshooting and in-depth analysis of tough to diagnose Wi-Fi problems.

Sidekick Enabled

Ekahau Capture makes it possible for anyone to quickly capture Wi-Fi packets using Ekahau Sidekick.

No Extra Equipment

You no longer have to invest into dedicated and expensive equipment or fallback on complex and unreliable methods to perform packet capture.

Capture to Optimize Wi-Fi Networks Performance

Capture causes of high channel utilization and calculate Wi-Fi traffic statistics such as retry rates, average data rates and frame type distribution.

Keep Your Network Safe

Capture security threats such as mis-configured Wi-Fi security settings, exposed network or user information, unencrypted traffic, denial of Service (DoS) attacks.


Two is More Than One

Leverage both Wi-Fi radios in Ekahau Sidekick to capture on two Wi-Fi channels simultaneously and ensure packets aren’t missed while devices roam between two access points. Or, capture on 2.4 and 5 GHz simultaneously.

Compatible with 3rd Party Tools

Ekahau Capture saves packets in the industry standard .pcap format. Use the Sidekick all-in-one Wi-Fi diagnostics device included with Connect or any other packet analyzer (sold separately) to resolve connectivity issues, roaming issues, garbled audio, dropped calls and Wi-Fi driver issues.
