Postby g0tr00t » Thu May 16, 2002 12:28 pm

The top of my original message disappeared. Anyway, I searched the forum for these answers and they are all conflicting. At least the answers I found were. So I put it in a basic format. If anyone or group would like to answer, I will reformat with answers and post in the FAQ thread. Thanks!

FAQ Questions

Postby hkelley » Tue May 28, 2002 5:44 pm

Question: Besides generating a GPS related database, how can I work with the .ns1 data format? Can I export it to or read it with Excel or a flat file database? How do I use the merge feature to create a master file?


Edit: These two questions were answered in the FAQ 06-20-2003.

Question: If I run NetStumbler and my client manager at the same time, does one interfere with the other? Does scan speed have an effect on maintaining a connection in the background?

Will Also Do 802.11A

UPDATE: As of Ver. 4.6/4.7 It will also do 802.11G as does AiroPeek

Orinoco/Lucent/Proxim Card Firmware

Q: My Lucent/Orinoco/Proxim Gold or Silver card is reported as "unsupported".

A: The drivers that come preinstalled with Windows may not be compatible with Netstumber. Upgrade to the latest drivers and card firmware from http://support.proxim.com/

In particular, the Windows 2000 drivers are known not to work with Netstumbler.
