Configuration and operational information about stumbled AP's

Apple 802.11a/b/g multi-band Wireless-Bridge

Postby kithylin » Sun Dec 21, 2003 8:54 am

A friend of mine has one of these, they look like a silver breast, and they connect to a wireless network, A/B/G, and bridge it to any other network, A/B/G, and they use 256-bit WEP, SUPPOSEDLY, these devices are "completely invisible" to PC's.

Has anyone ever detected seeing these in NS, or any other "stumbling" software, linux, freeBSD, etc. ? I'm wondering if these indeed are truely invisible, or if we've detected them once or more. Also these devices "supposedly" are able to only allow PC's to see they're existance, to begin with, when the PC's MAC is allowed, so i'm told. Just wondering ^,^

If they broadcast SSID enabled, NS will pick them up. If they operate on the normal a/b/g channels, Kismet will pick them up.

Also if its the silver one it's 802.11b only. I have one hanging on my wall. PC's can connect to them just fine.

Yes, pc's can connect, if the security is set to allow that, i'm refering to the "Apple Airport Extreme" model, BTW. I'm just curious if our stumbler community was able to some how, see past they're "security", is all.

They don't show up as Apple, they show up as Lucent, or whoever makes the .11g cards, I forget right now.
