Netstumbler, How To

Discussion in 'Wireless Internet' started by Michael Vilhelmsen, Feb 22, 2004.

  1. Hi

    I hav downloaded NetStumbler.
    I have a labtop with a Wireless netcard installed.

    When at home I can start NetStumbler (0.3.30) and it immidially finds my own
    AP.
    Then I tried taking my labtop with my in my car, when I was going to my
    brothers place.

    All the way out there it said nothing.
    Thats all right, since I didn't know if the would be any AP on the way.

    But when stopping in front of my brothers house, netstumbler still didn't
    find anything.
    This eventhough my brother has his own AP.
    Even when standigng 2 meters from his AP, it still didn't say anything.
    At the buttom of the program it just said: No APs Active every 1 or 2
    seconds.

    Am I doing anything wrong (can I do anything wrong).


    My WLAN is a SparkLan. Its installed with some PRISM driver of some kind,
    which I use to configure my WLAN netcard with.


    I actually got the impression, that going (either by foot or slowly in car)
    through an area would bring netstumbler to display some AP.........

    Were you able to connect to your brother's WAP?
    You may have configured your card to connect to your WAP's SSID.

    With my Orinoco, if I tell it to connect to "doldhouse", I don't see any
    other WAPs as I'm driving around. If I configure my card to connect to
    "default", then it sees other WAPs.

    What if I let Windows Control the settings ?

    Whatever tool you are using for configuration should allow a connection to
    ANY. It may be a check box, or you might have to put ANY as the SSID.
