    Router in a Car with GPS

    I was planning out my idea to put a wireless router in my car, with a computer that has GPS. However, I dont know how the GPS software will react with a wireless router that keeps moving, and I dont want to end up having a trail of where AP's everywhere I've driven : P So, would the GPS software keep detecting my router as I'm driving along the road, or will it only pick it up once. And if it would keep picking my router up, is there a way I can make it so it doesnt?

    What the hell are you talking about?

    GPS has nothing to do with Wifi, unless you are using something like Netstumbler to find and map open APs, thus leaving "a trail of AP's everywhere [you've] driven," which is something you said you didnt want.

    er... yeah ,'/

    I'll try to explain this better:

    I'm gonna use GPS to map out Access Points, but I'm going to have an AP in the car with me, and I dont want it to keep updating the location of my AP. And I'll probably use NetStumbler, unless it keeps updating the location of my AP, and some other program doesn't.

    I would suggest you pop over to the Netstumbler forums and ask your questions there.




    However before you do read the following

    1. improve your english skills otherwise they are going to jump all over you.
    2. DO NOT mention accessing these AP's you find otherwise they will jump all over you.
    3. Do not mention that you want netstumbler to allow hibernation otherwise they will jump all over you.
    4. they will jump all over you.



    if I have missed anything out guys, please add to my above list.

    he means, will it detect the Wireless AP he has in his boot (i'm UK ) over and over again?

    No, it will detect it once.

    damn I want that AP that you can fit into your boot, but it would be kinda strange carrying things around in your shoes.
