My ghettofantastic setup

Postby someguy805 » Fri Jan 06, 2006 11:52 pm

I've been with my friends wardriving, but I finally got aroung to getting set up myself


Laptop:NEC Versa 2760MT (Pentium 166MMX, 96MB RAM, 2GB HD, Win2K) and some random bag I found
WiFi:Motorola WN825G
GPS:Garmin eTrex Legend, connected to serial port
Power:Cheap 100 watt inverter for car use, 2-hour battery
Vehicle: 1968 VW Bug, complete with 62 raging horsepower

Cheap (the laptop, card, and working battery was $15, GPS was a gift) and gets the job done. The only problem is the card I got has no antenna connection.

The GPS is the real great part. With WAAS enabled, it's accurate to +/- 10 feet, and it runs forever on a set of batteries.

My setup is in the same class
Dell CPi 266 with 128 megs ram, 10 gig hd, 2 batteries (about 6 hours of stumble time without power)
Orinoco gold card,
dual cantenna rig
400 watt power inverter,
Meridian GPS (goes about 12 hours on 2 AA batteries but I run it off power plug.

You will find if you peruse the listed kits of what people use that alot on here will not use a high end laptop since it really does not make that much of a difference for collecting.
Against the run of the mill, static as it seems

Is that something to be proud of?

No matter what hardware you use with windows, for detection: a WRT54G Kismet Drone will beat it hands down for less money.

Locating [roque] AP's is another matter. Even with all the triangulation in the world, 4 close up buildings with 10 stocks, 200 employees per stock will give you a major challance and lot's of walking & crawling.

If I were to guess I'd have to say 10 stocks = 10 floors?
