I was using wireshark 1.6.12 and decoding AIROPEEK package ok. After upgrading to 1.8.4, that option is gone from "Decode As..." option. Am I missing something here?

I don't have an "airopeek" capture file at hand to test with. Could you post one on and paste the link to the file here to analyse?

Airopeek was ambiguous. There's the capture file format and UDP transported traffic. Therefore this last one was renamed PEEKREMOTE. See this revision of the change.

And the capture file format isn't "AiroPeek" - WildPackets' own terms for their two capture file formats, both of which have been used by versions of EtherPeek, TokenPeek, and AiroPeek, are "Peek classic" and "Peek tagged". The UDP-transported traffic, as the revision notes, is not unique to AiroPeek, so the protocol was renamed.
