  1. I just relocated to the Baltimore/DC area and was wondering what meetings are currently active. There seems to be an Arlington and Baltimore meeting but I couldn't find a DC specific meeting. Anyone in the area know of any active meetings?
  2. I've got some spare room if anyone needs somewhere to crash. No need to chip in on the room, you can just pay your way with booze.
  3. Yes, I'll definitely be there for once.
  4. Just going to let everyone know that I'm going to be making it, so if anyone is interested in grabbing a beer, send me a PM.
  5. Sorry guys, I didn't realize they were taken down again. I was planning on having them up until everyone could find a new home. I'll have them put back in a few minutes.

  7. Just my answer to the question posed tonight. I'm a fan of: http://airscanner.com/downloads/sniffer/sniffer.html for a pocket pc sniffer and this is by far my favorite pocket PC softphone: http://www.xten.com/index.php?menu=products&smenu=xproppc
  8. Making your own antenna isn't the issue, whatever its use. The FCC regulates what frequencies you can transmit on and at what power levels you can transmit. Hook up a 100W transmitter to something and see what happens.

  10. Umm... I'm not quite sure what you are talking about. With wireless, 1. Yes, you do have to do more to lock it down, but overall if you are not willing to learn how to do this, I think you are in the wrong place. 2. Slower internet!??!? What are you talking about? If you are refering to the fact that 11Mb/s wireless is ~ 1/10th the bandwidth of a 100Mb/s wired port, yes this is true, but fortunately since I know of noone who has a 10Mb/s+ Internet connection at their house, this will not be an issue. Let's say you have 3Mb/s cable service. If if you have 802.11b (11Mb/s), you still have ~4x more bandwidth than your Internet pipe has available. And I'm not even sure what, "and not having internet fully" means. Overall, it does sound like a wireless router would be the perfect thing for you, but make sure that if you are going to implement the wireless that you understand the security issues involved in, and if you have any questions about securing your wireless, anyone here would be more than happy to point you in the right direction.
  11. Nah, not X with Cobol, use Cobol .Net Now, that's just scary. When the 50 year old programmer decides to move on to new technologies.
  12. I've been all over google and can't seem to find much. Does anyone know of any documentation on disabling CSMA/CA or CSMA/CD in the linux kernel or if this is going to be a function of the NIC itself.
  13. Think more along the lines of, walking into the bank with a PDA with 802.11*. Although, I can't think of a bank in their right minds that would use IP based wireless cameras over a close circuit TV system. Plus, even if they were using X10 style cameras, you could just use a white noise generator in the right frequency range to knock those out completely anyway.
  14. Yeah, or you could go rewrite pcap using pascal and write you're on GUI using cobol, but the obvious question is why? Actually, rather than using tcpdump and perl, try ngrep.
  15. The reason the cordless is killing it is because both are ~2.4Ghz devices.
  16. Ethereal is a one of the best open source sniffers out there. You'd be hard pressed to find one with more protocol decoders.
  17. http://www.xten.com/index.php?menu=products&smenu=xpro I use their X-Lite product all the time.
  18. Actually, there is a known DoS against wireless 802.11b/g networks (And probably any other layer 2 that uses CSMA/CA) that just requires a device that disables it's CSMA/CA and just streams packets at full speed at the network. The idea is that if you have a host that doesn't care of anything else is sending, but every other node on the network does, and just keeps pumping out small frames, the other devices never get a chance to send, and with CSMA/CA being more active than CSMA/CD you realistically should be able to halt the ability for most any device in range to transmit. (In range and on the same channel)
  19. Ah, just wanting to disable CSMA/CA on my wireless card for some fun. Yes, CSMA/CD is a layer 2 function.
  20. Ok, here goes. This is what I go wardriving with and why: Hardware: Any PII laptop or above. Orinoco Gold with 7db omni. Power inverter for your car (Come on they are onlly $50) Software: Kismet (For AP location) Metasploit Framework VNCViewer (For use with the MSF) Nmap (For network fingerprinting) samba (For smbclient) smbfs compiled in the kernel perl ( I wrote a script that uses nmap to enumerate, then uses smbclient, and msf to test for weak admin passwords and unpatched boxes) dsniff (For the obvious reasons) aircrack and airsnort (Not useful on the drive but if you are working a WEP protected access point, great for using at home) asleap (For those rare occasions you find a Cisco that is actually using LEAP) ethereal (You don't need this when driving because kismet can do pcap dumps but it's useful if you need to something on the spot) rdesktop (Something I haven't brought before but someone had suggested it and it sounds like a good idea just in case) And if you are a windows user, I suggest (Keep in mind I'm not a windows person): netstumbler (For AP location) kain (Enough said) Also, we tried out a new live CD called auditor, and I have to say I would recommend it to those who either don't want to install linux, don't have their own hardware, or just need a temporary OS for a throwaway box. Much less script kiddie like than Knoppix STD, and comes with most, if not all of the tools you'll need. Edit: One added note, if you are going to use kismet, and you are using a live CD, turn off all log types except dump (PCAP dumps for opening in ethereal) and also turn off beacon logging. Nothing like trying to find 100 legitimate data packets in 100000 beacon logs (Yes you can apply an output filter in ethereal so they don't show up, but do it right the first time)
  21. Just had to show you guys. I bought this the other day because it was cheap, and I'm loaning my Airport basestation. Well, after installing one of the alternative firmwares, I had this little nice surprise.
  22. There is an opensource firmware called HyperWRT or something like that. It worked great, but this one just has more features and the 251mw maximum transmit level is sweet. Personal favorites include, multiple vlan setup, sshd or telnetd, and quite a few other things.
  23. Yep. This one is running Sveasoft's new alchemy firmware. It's $20 (Normally ) and it does support the GS. Although, from looking at the measurements of it at each point, 50mw, 100mw, etc.. anything over 200 looks almost too dirty. It looked pretty clean at 150mw so that's where I'm leaving it at. It's ~3x more powerful than stock even then.
  24. Umm.. Me thinks you are a bit confused. I think he wants to load balance bandwidth consumption, not data processing. Also, are you wanting to load balance among multiple connections or are you just trying to send as much down the pipe as you can?
  25. Hell, I'll offer LD service to all of these countries for $0.02/minute. http://www.broadvoice.com/rateplans_unlimited_world.html Mwahahahahahahaha
