re: my last post who said i was using it to steal broadband did u ever think that i mite have actually just been intrested in wireless networks and stuff maybe. Obvisouly people are out on here to think wardrivng broadband theft get you facts strait
I was actually pretty damn close to starting up another thread about the wardriving/laptop thing. I knew lumberg was just a radio nerd. It's silly to just assume he's out to pinch peoples interenets.
I mean what's the point? Going horray I scored 1Gb of data but I had to drive halfway around the city & sit in my car to do it? Its rather annoying when people assume any kind of hacking to being illegal stuff straight away without asking questions. Anyway, wardriving is just viewing data which is broadcast on the airwaves. The data is already out there bring broadcast.
AAaanyway I hear alot of people are doing stuff with the EEE, because its portible.. Just because its small. Basically lumberg you want to look at what network adaptors/chipsets are good. You need 'promiscous' mode to be supported, and whatever that mode is that lets you accept packets without being connected to a WAN.
Avoid any network adapter that needs NDISwrapper to function. You want native linux drivers.
Edit: Anyway the icing on the cake is that wardriving is NOT theifing broadband. Theifing broadband is theifing broadband. If you're theifing broadband you arent scanning.
