Netstumbler is for finding hotspots. Unfortunately, it's not quite as good as Kismet, because it cannot find AP's that don't broadcast their SSID.

If you're going for stealth, be warned that Netstumbler transmits pretty distinctive Probe Request frames.

In contrast, Kismet listens passively with the card set in Monitor mode, and does not transmit. Unfortunately, Kismet is not available for windows (at least not in its fully functional form. The frontend is available, but it requires a kismet drone source running on another machine). I'm not aware of any Windows software that works like this, although some of the commercial products for wireless auditing might.

AirMagnet is another package, but it's not free. In the immortal words of Dave's Dad, "Free is better than not free." So it might not be what you're looking for.

i've never done wireless sniffing in windows, but aircrack-ng is good linux software for sniffing traffic, using packet injection to get more IVs, and cracking WEP encryption. their website says they have a windows binary you can download: http://aircrack-ng.org/doku.php

it might be hard getting windows drivers working for packet injection though. and yeah, i'd steer clear from netstumbler. kismet automatically detects netstumbler packets and tells you if there's a windows wardriver in the area. a book i've been reading, wi-foo, suggests writing a program that waits for netstumbler traffic then send out tons of fake response packets to confuse the windows user. basically, you can't trust the results, and it's not stealthy at all.

I been having trouble trying to install Kismet on my Fedora laptop since I have the ipw3945 card...

Has anyone had to install it on the 3945 card intel?

I don't use Fedora, have no idea which version you're using, and I don't use an ipw3945, so I am completely flying blind here. However, I did poke around a bit, and it seems like your driver must be compiled with monitor mode enabled, and it may be that your driver isn't compiled with it. The option is "CONFIG_IPW3945_MONITOR=y", and the reference I found to this is here: http://www.kismetwir...62844529.136662 .

Looks like you'll have to mess around with compiling a driver for it. Or you may want to play around and see if maybe the Backtrack livecd has it compiled right.

The official Fedora package of kismet sucks unless you are using it as an ids with multiple drones. If you aren't doing that, which you don't seem to be, I highly suggest getting another package or making one.

Airmagnet does do passive wardriving.

Why hasn't netstumbler got it figured out yet? It's been like 5 years.

Cain & Abel with this little mufty will give you winblows peeps something the linux community have had for years. A little pricey but excellent and at least helps Case funding. The cheaper non TX version is listen only so whilst being a little more legal is also undetectable as it wont transmit

Thank you for the feedback. Right now I'm using Fedora 7 the most current one. I had a feeling it was my drivers that I was having trouble with. I will check out the link you gave me.

If that does not work do you guys think a usb wifi card would be better to have?

wifi hopper is a great app to. it lets you scan for access points and auto-connect to them when you get a strong enough signal.

On another note, the Alfa usb wifi adapter is phenomenal for war driving and injecting.

Well one thing I forgot to tell you guys is that my dell laptop does not have a PCMCIA slot... I have what is called an "Express slot" sucks wish I had the PCMCIA slot.

that's the whole reason why I need a usb one that will work .

Well, the wireless card you have built in is supposed to be supported in Kismet, so rather than worry about buying a USB adapter or whatever, I'd look into either compiling the drivers yourself, or maybe even seeing if another distro has things sorted out for you.

You probably have a broadcom card in your dell.
If you look in the device manager you should be able to tell what series it is.

Well I have the Intel ®/Wireless 3945ABG card... That's what I run on both my Vista and Fedora. I might need help understanding or making my card work the correct way. I was about to reformat my laptop again and try Ubuntu or something. I'm still thinking about it.

Is netstumbler working for you under Vista? I know that they been having trouble with that... I tried it but didn't seem to work or the network adapter was not found...
