console convert pcap to wav: not easily possible; use the WireShark GUI to do

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/12/01

Wanting a simple way on the console to convert a .pcap file to a .wav file, I searched for [Wayback] console convert pcap to wav – Google Search.

The reason is that [Wayback] fritzcap (written in Python) sometimes crashes while doing the conversion of a phone recording, so then only the .pcap file is available. I still want to figure this out, but given my health situation, I might not be able to in time.

If anyone with Python experience can help, I have failing capture files lying around, and the fritzcap command-line does support decoding [Wayback/Archive.is]:

# feature/re-add_documentation(+0/-0)* ± python fritzcap.py --help
usage: fritzcap.py [-h] [-v] [-c] [-d [file [file ...]]] [-m] [-p password]
                   [-u username] [-s] [--config_file path_to_file]
                   [--logging_config path_to_file] [--box_name host_or_IP]
                   [--call_service_port port] [--login_not_required]
                   [--protocol protocol] [--cap_folder path_pattern]
                   [--cap_file file_pattern] [--cap_interface cap_interface]
                   [--after_capture_time time_in_seconds]
                   [--decode_workers_count int]

...
main arguments:
...
  -d [file [file ...]], --decode_files [file [file ...]]
                        the list of captured files to decode. All the new
                        captures files will be decode automatically if the
                        --capture switch is set. Read the files from the
                        standard input if the list of files is empty and there
                        is no capture work.

Back to other tooling for decoding VoIPcap/pcap files

Too bad there are no easy solutions. You can use the WireShark GUI to do this, which is OK for infrequent conversions.

Here were some of the results leading me to that conclusion:

For WiFi guest networks with a fixed SSID: QR code – Wikipedia

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/10/06

Access Denied

Access Denied

I knew it was possible to generate QR codes to access quest networks (as the QR code has credentials) for WiFi networks having a fixed SSID.

I just never bothered, but did when needed home care with quite a few different people providing the care.

Generating was easier than I anticipated, though I hoped I just could put the parameters in a URL and fire off to get a page including the QR code.

Alas, the pages I found require you to enter the SSID name and key/password phrase.

That’s OK: I have saved the PNG files for our network and my brother’s as images so I can put them on-line, and printed them out so guests can scan and use the network at once.

Here we go:

  • 124 network Access Denied, key 2171TB24
  • 171 network Disconnected, key 1060NP71

Fritz!Box repeater and other devices: “Radar detection enabled. At the moment no wireless LAN connection (5 GHz) is possible; please wait.”

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/05/31

If any of your Fritz!Box devices under “Wireless” -> “Radio Channel” -> “5-GHz band”  the indicates “Radar detection enabled. At the moment no wireless LAN connection (5 GHz) is possible; please wait.” – Google Search:

  1. Click on the “Refresh Auto Channel” button
  2. Wait until it has chosen a new 5Ghz channel
  3. Verify you can connect over 5Ghz
  4. If you still cannot connect, retry steps 1…3 once.

I had this only happen on 1750E repeaters so far, but others seem to have had it on other Fritz!Box devices as well.

In the Netherlands, potentially affected channels seem to be 52 through 140.

Using an Fritzbox as DECT-Repeater – PC-WELT

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/04/03

I totally forgot it was possible to usie an old Fritz!Box to act as a DECT repeater:

Um die Abdeckung von DECT für mobile Festnetztelefone zu verbessern, lässt sich eine ältere Fritzbox verwenden.
