my questions is this:
can a router detect other wifi clients (such as smartphones PDA, etc...), from his side, without doing any router search at the device?
the operational scenario is: plurality of wifi devices, and one router. the devices are not activly trying to connect to a router. the router needs to preform some sort of scan and provide a list of wifi devices aorund it - but without creating a network with them.
forgive me if i am not using the proper technical terms.
we are sart-up company with a novel RF technology, and we need to understand how to apply it to the wifi world.
any help is highly appreciated.
