CommView WiFi found enemy protocol MNGT/Probe Resp. sent
Hi, after installing Tamosoft CommView WiFi I analyzed the NW environment in my building and found that my neighbour's wireless AP (on Channel 1) sends packages every 60 sec. to my laptop (on Channel 11 identified with the MAC address) and to other WiFi devices with the protocol "MNGT/Probe Resp". What type of information he can collect with this type of protocol? If you need more information I can supply it. Thank you. Royal
OK. I read the suggested article and agree. Netstumbler is like CommView. According to the statistics tool in CommView my neighbour's AP is only sending packets and not receiving. But it sends these management packets ONLY to two-three stations connected to my AP, broadcasting on a different channel. There are more then 30 hosts and AP in the building, according the statistics tool. Is there any explanation for this type of "selective broadcasting"?
