Hypothetical question about wireless adapters and security
If a computer enables its built in wireless adapter by default in the bios, without an operating system installed, would the wirless adapter send out any information?
If there was a linux OS installed, and the kernel contained a wireless driver for the adapter and brought up the adapter on boot, would the adapter send out any information as to the computers existance ?(or would wireless settings have to be made first).
