On several Windows 7 64-bit systems I'm not able to save decryption keys for decrypting wireless packets. Normally I use the Decryption Keys button on the Wireless toolbar. Also the key management under Preferences -> Protocols -> IEEE 802.11 and the Decryption Keys Settings on the toolbar are not consistent. Does anyone else can confirm this problem?

Best Regards

I just discovered this same problem both with XP 32bit and Win7 64bit.

Are you referring to wpa-psk keys? If so, see my answers to questions 13688 or 13951.

Regarding the key format inconsistency between preferences and wireless toolbar, bug 7681 was filed against it. Feel free to add yourself to the bug CC list if you want to be notified of any updates regarding this issue.
