Kismet An 802.11 wireless network detector, sniffer, and intrusion detection system

Posted 09-02-2009 at 08:12 AM by sridhar11

Kismet is a 802.11b wireless network sniffer. It is capable of sniffing using almost any supported wireless card using the Airo, HostAP, Wlan-NG, and Orinoco (with a kernel patch) drivers.Kismet identifies networks by passively collecting packets and detecting standard named networks, detecting (and given time, decloaking) hidden networks, and infering the presence of nonbeaconing networks via data traffic.

Trouble loading surveys

Posted 09-01-2009 at 10:36 PM by Bixie

Thank You so much

Going Multilib

Posted 09-01-2009 at 05:50 PM by brianL

I could do with finding some means of testing it, but my knowledge of programming is limited to cut & paste, or just copying programs, to compile.

I meant this evening to continue exploring the installation of Slackware onto my old Dell laptop. The battery stopped working many years ago and I've been running it off the mains. This evening I plugged in the power-supply and switched on at the socket and nothing happened.

I've put a meter across the mains outlet and it's working and the plug's fuse is okay and power gets as far as the connection into the power supply, but there's no little green light coming on.
