    does NetStumbler actually CONNECT to access points?

    I can't actually connect to an access point by double clicking the AP in the list. I have to close ns and then open my network cards litle utility and then connect to the network because aparently they don't like to run at the same time. I'm using NDIS 5.1

    is there some way it will actually connect to the network for you? or am i looking at the wrong program? i want a program that will list all the APs i've picked up and if i want, i can double click on it or something and it automatically connects me.

    also is there some way to dump the acess points you pick up into a POI list or something for either dest 3 or iguidance 2?

    no, netstumbler just detects access points, you cant actually connect to them, but thats a good idea...hahah.


    yes, you can get a script that runs netstumbler and mappoint and pulls info off gps and plots it in your mappoint.

    NS wont connect, just use windows.
    How in the world would you put the special AirPort card in a PC? Mine is a Mac anyway but it's too old to AirPort. I just use a zip drive to transfer.

    I have a Linksys WUSB11 in my car... there is no Linksys program to manage networks, so I have to use Windows.

    Are there any custom programs that anyone knows about?

    When a device gets put into promiscuous mode, the driver is limited to receive only (Rx). The driver sets a fake MAC address and channel hops looking for any raw 802.11x frames it sees. Netstumbler, like other wireless sniffing apps, places the card into promiscuous mode. Taking it out of promiscuous mode and putting it back into infrastructure or Adhoc sometimes leaves the card in an unknown state (Older Cisco drivers forced me to pull out and push back in my card to reset itself, and I've had the same issues with my built-in prism2.5 chipset). Lots of people had difficulty with this, so many app writers left that part up to the user.

    I'm not saying it's not improved since then...I'm just giving a little background into the situation.

    I'd use Window's software to control what AP you are connecting to. Just click "use this AP even though it's not secure" and be off and running. It's not that bad, really.
