I have read and followed Wireshark's guide, and successfully decrypted the example file, but when it comes to my file it doesn't work. I have made sure that both the SSID and the password are correctly spelled in the settings. The entire EAPOL handshake is present, so I don't understand what I'm doing wrong.

Here is a screenshot of the handshake:

Maybe the problem is that there more than 4 packets?

Here is the pcap file, in case it helps. The password for the AP is "privacyblibwifi".

Does anyone know how to solve this problem? Thanks.

It has worked for me with your trace: But I had to toggle the marked combo from "Wireshark" to "None" and back to "Wireshark". alt text
