This isn't exactly the answer to your question, but you might want to consider RADIUS as the authentication mechanism, instead of updating the config of each AP. AFAIU you need flexible user/password configuration.

First it's a bad idea of using a other channel than 1, 6 or 11. Channel 1 is 22 MHz width so it interferes with channel 2 and 3. See more http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_WLAN_channels. If the channels 1 and 2 are used Carrier sense multiple access with collision avoidance will not be used. To use this the AP must be on the same channel. Now it will ...

Ok it worked finally. It seems like client mode definitely have some problem on older kernel but I am able to setup adhoc mode between two nodes. Only thing needs to be done is to forcibly put other machine into the cell of primary ad-hoc machine. iwconfig ath0 ap <Cell Id of priamry Ad-hoc System>

You are typically accepting a terms of use agreement when you log in or click OK. So in general it's mostly for legal purposes.

Focus on the changes you made that could have impacted this. You made changes to the Aironets, and now 1/2 your wireless PCs are impacted. You should be smart and simply revert those changes immediately, to restore service to your users. Then, you could test those changes one-by-one, preferably in a test environment, to see which of those changes (or ...

The answer is that it really depends on your specific environment. Without many more details, no one can answer this for you. However we can provide some guidance that may help you in making this decision. Each infrastructure or AP wireless device you have on a channel (in the same area) will increase the amount of "air time" on that channel used by ...

Connect to your existing network, without question. Not only will this reduce RF noise, but it will also greatly simplify the instructions you'll need to provide to the users of these devices.

In your hostapd.conf: # Module bitfield (ORed bitfield of modules that will be logged; -1 = all # modules): # bit 0 (1) = IEEE 802.11 # bit 1 (2) = IEEE 802.1X # bit 2 (4) = RADIUS # bit 3 (8) = WPA # bit 4 (16) = driver interface # bit 5 (32) = IAPP # bit 6 (64) = MLME # # Levels (minimum value for logged events): # 0 = verbose debugging # 1 = debugging ...

you're looking for mac80211 virtual interface support: The mac80211 subsystem in the linux kernel supports multiple wireless interfaces to be created with one physical wireless card. This depends on the driver implementing this. This could allow you to join multiple networks at once, or connect to one network while routing traffic from an access ...

you are really talking about network virtualization which you could do using applications such as VMware workstation for windows or VMware fusion for MAC users. There are other applications in the market that can be used for similar situation. You will then need to create a virtual OS with multiple vNICs. I personally haven't tried this but in theory it ...

Usually you can track events from access point(s) by checking its logs. Some of the APs support syslog export, so you can direct AP's logs to your local system and use something like fail2ban or other log analyzer to catch failed attempts. Not all APs support exporting logs with syslog. Edit: It seems to be possible to sniff for the traffic, once you're ...

Without narrowing your question down to specific products, this can only be answered generally. Typically, if a switch fails all devices that have a connection to that switch will lose connectivity. As for the switch being exploitable, barring any sort of bug, a properly configured device should not be exploitable by someone connected to an open "guest" ...

Find the ip address of the connection using cmd.exe, then look up the location on a website based on the ip. (only works for unsecured WiFi connections due to security)

From what i know, changing BSSID is hardware related. So, unless you provide some details regarding your router, i doubt you'll get much help. Now, considering your main goal is to protect your wlan, using WPA2 with a 63 chars passphrase will do a way better job than hiding/changing SSID/BSSID.

Because it is extremely difficult that you have a WAN link capable of more then 100 Mb/s full duplex. Heck, basically you need to have a optical link to the home (FTTH) or some very fast VDSL+ evolution. On the other hand, having a very fast internal network is very useful. For example, file transfer between two wifi-connected PC will be much faster on a ...

It was a bug. The person who developed the original PWD code only added the User-Name VALUE_PAIR to the request's user-name caching pointer, not to the actual request list. Some modules ignore the pointer, it was crappy optimisation from a long time ago. Adding the pair to the request list fixes the issue. Here's the commit. Thanks for helping track down ...

As long as: (1) SSID are the same. (2) APs are in different subnet via WLC. (3) Same authentication type. (EAP, 8021X, etc) (4) Different channel (5) Same 2.5GhZ. Inter-controller roaming will take place.

We had the same model (or same family) long time ago and it had similar symptoms before it completely died. Network traffic slowed down, and WiFi range dropped dramatically. When opened, I noticed some of the capacitors had noticeable 'bulges'. So I'm guessing the electronics inside yours is just coming to the end of its life.
