Still learning this, but I came up with 6 seconds because of the 24 total channels for b & g. 80211b and 80211g use the same frequency. So there is only 12 channels not 24. I have an old compaq m300 laptop, which is running pretty much at 95%-100% with kismet. My first linux box was a 233mhz toughb...

Topic: wardriving box
NICE! I've been meaning to play around with something like that, a kind of just plug it in and it will do the rest kinda guy. I love that case too, I have the same one I believe, a Home Depot special right? Only thing I'd be worried about is those antennas snapping off if it ever fell off the seat,...

I am lucky to live in one of the most populated cities in the country for wardriving, "Los Angeles". I work 30+ miles from home and the side streets are sometimes as fast the frwys. So I decided to take my laptop and war drive on the way home one day. Then I realized that driving side streets is ac...

If you are in the USA, you might watch the upcoming Black Friday Thanksgiving sales. Last year I got two USGlobalsat bu-353 USB GPS for USD $30 each. It's much less wires than keeping your serial GPS charged, it's smaller, and I got better performance. I'm not making this stuff up. The BU-353 shoul...

I will probably be using BackTrack 3 (at least until I get drivers for Ubuntu that are capable of monitor mode.) and I made the suggested changes on my GPS. I probably would never have figured that out on my own. What wireless card are you using? I run Ubuntu with no problem with monitor mode. Prox...

I have a Garmin eTrex Legend and I want to use it with GPSD + Kismet, but the cable to hook it to the computer is RS232/serial and my laptop doesn't have a RS232/serial connector on it. I've been looking at some RS232/serial to USB adapter cables, but I'm not sure what to get. I hope you guys can h...

Topic: Debian linux and kismet
I downloaded debian 4.04 and installed it to my wardriving laptop that was previously running netstumbler. Kismet and gpsd were not included. They were not in the package manager list, so I typed sudo apt-get install gpsd and it said that the package was not found and did the same for kismet. I am ...

I needed a raster webmap for claiborne parish in north louisana. There wasn't one to download but it had a request new button, I clicked that and a message appeared saying it would be a few minutes before the map was generated. It has been a day and no map. Is there problem? Or do I need more patie...

Very nice. All you need now is 200 miles a day on it and you'll be good to go.

Topic: Wardriver for hire?
I'm looking for a Bay Area based individual with a quality wardriving setup who would be interested in a day's work. A town in this area signed a contract for city-wide Wi-Fi with our ISP, but then under pressure from "electrosensitive" individuals, voided the agreement. I've done a brief drive wit...

Topic: I'm Dagaroth, BTW
Forgot myself. I've been around a while, mostly peeking, not saying much. I've been wardriving for about 3 years, but I only started uploading files last year. I'm a Semiconductor equipment technician for IBM, in other words, if you have a Wii, any form of Xbox or PS3 (do people actually have those...
