The results of my searches have not been able to say that it is possible to get a mac address of devices that are within the range of a wireless router.
Can someone confirm whether or not this is actually possible?
To my limited knowledge, the router would be broadcasting information that the "potential" clients can read, meaning the router has no access to any information from the client. What I would like to know is if it is possible to somehow get a reference, or at least a count, to the number of unique devices that have "seen" my router's SSID?
Can you please provide a link to some documentation that can give me a clearer understanding of that, and if it is possible to achieve this using any other hardware device, please feel free to bring it up.
The following is practical example of what I would like to achieve: I would like to have a device (router?) sitting in my store (with whatever special setting up required) and at the end of the day be able to get some statistics related to how many devices were near my store (regardless of whether the devices tried to connect or not). And by number of devices I am "estimating" the number of customers I have had today.
If this is not possible with a regular router, as there any other device that can do this.
