Detect Wireless Networks with Kismet

Kismet is a 802.11x wireless network detector and sniffer. It can detect any wireless network in range, assuming that you have a card that supports raw monitoring and that the network is broadcasting in 802.11b, g or a. I use this a lot when I have interference with my wireless connection, and I need to figure out what channels are open. Many people use this to discover and map wireless networks in their area.

  1. Hey – great blog, just looking around some blogs, seems a really nice platform you are using. I’m currently using WordPress for a few of my blogs but looking to change one of them over to a platform similar to yours as a trial run. Anything in particular you would recommend about it? wireless mapping fence
