We have intel centrino advanced-n 6205 hardware. Our wireless infrastructure hasn't changed a bit. A buddy here at work used Kismet for Mac OS X and detected hundreds of ad hoc wireless networks. Does anyone know if this card has some sort of ad hoc networking enabled by default? I would think if each laptop were advertising ad hoc networking it would slow things down considerably.
I'm a developer by trade and networking is not my day job. I'm just trying to figure out if this is a possibility so I can open a ticket and hopefully jump start the process of getting this corrected by our networking group.
We are running Windows 7 Enterprise with a custom image. We are using the Intel ProSET/Wireless software version 126.96.36.199.
