paranoid?

Don't know if I am extremly paranoid, but I would like to know if software in BT5 may be useful to scan for any kind of wireless signal? ie, wifi-cameras, wifi-mics, and so on... I currently have an Alfa card...
thanks in advance!

Airodump-ng will listen to any wifi device that is using TCP/IP.

Now it could be that the devices your looking for do not use TCP/IP. In that case it would be hard to track exactly whats going on without know the protocol being used.

In this case you need an RF analyzer type of software with appropriate drivers.

At least thats what I think.

you also need to make sure you can see any wireless signal. there is a/b/n/g a being the one that is likely harder to find as its up at 5.8ghz I think while b n and g are all 2.4ghz if I am not mistaken.

Depends on the frequency and protocol being used by the hardware.

Try bottom of this page to see what I mean about the frequency; different
hardware is tuned to different frequencies. Don't know if there is an
'all-band' scanner, but it's not likely to be cheap.

@Kearnstd
b/g are definately 2.4Ghz, a is 5.8Ghz, while N can be 2.4 and/or 5.8
depending on mfr support.
