-=====  Usage =====+It outputs a new file ending with "-dec.cap" which is the decrypted/stripped version of the input file.

 +Wildcards may be used on the input file name providing it only matches a single file.  In general, it is recommended that you use a single file name as input, not wildcarding.
-===== Examples  =====+===== Usage Examples =====
 +The following removes the wireless headers from an open network (no WEP) capture:
   airdecap-ng -b 00:09:5B:10:BC:5A open-network.cap   airdecap-ng -b 00:09:5B:10:BC:5A open-network.cap
 +The following decrypts a WEP-encrypted capture using a hexadecimal WEP key:
   airdecap-ng -w 11A3E229084349BC25D97E2939 wep.cap   airdecap-ng -w 11A3E229084349BC25D97E2939 wep.cap
 +The following decrypts a WPA/WPA2 encrypted capture using the passphrase:
   airdecap-ng -e 'the ssid' -p passphrase  tkip.cap   airdecap-ng -e 'the ssid' -p passphrase  tkip.cap
 +===== Usage Tips =====
 +==== WPA/WPA2 Requirements ====
 +The capture file must contain a valid four-way handshake.  For this purpose having (packets 2 and 3) or (packets 3 and 4) will work correctly.  In fact, you don't truly need all four handshake packets.
 +As well, only data packets following the handshake will be decrypted.  This is because information is required from the handshake in order to decrypt the data packets.
 +==== How to use spaces, double quote and single quote in AP names? ====
 +See this [[:faq#how_to_use_spaces_double_quote_and_single_quote_in_ap_names|FAQ entry]]
 +===== Usage Troubleshooting =====
 +None at this time.
