  1. Yes the Open-Mesh mini router works great. I have Jasager running on one. It's the same hardware that's in a Fon 2100.
  2. They should have stayed with an Ahteros chipset. I think they'd sell more units that way.
  3. The Open-Mesh mini router is the same as a Fon 2100. See this post: http://forums.hak5.org/index.php?showtopic=12833 digininja's instructions should work just fine.
  4. Ok, so maybe some broadcom chipsets do work with monitor mode and injection. Hmmmm, did not know that.
  5. Others can correct me if I'm wrong as I'm not into pentesting, but you might want to take into consideration the wireless chipset that these particular models have. I've read that Broadcom based wireless cards are not that friendly in relation to monitor mode and packet injection. However I think the Atheros chipset works much better. I had no problems with my old AAO 8.9" netbook which had an Atheros chipset. I believe Dell uses the broadcom chipset. Can anyone else confirm or deny this? Although I think the safe bet to get an Atheros chipset would be to go with the Acer, I have seen a 10.1 inch model of the AAO with a broadcom chipset. So, I would lean more towards the Acer. But, I just checked my girlfriend's Acer Aspire One D250 (10.1") and it has a broadcom wireless chipset.
  6. Is there a place here in the forums where it would be appropriate to post an item for sale? I'm trying to sell my Netbook and looking to get more coverage. I've already got it on Craigslist and ebay.
  7. Perhaps they'll replace it with another show where we can watch them set there and do nothing but drink beer and ramble on in their half intoxicated state.
  8. If I had to guess it's probably because people are anxious about telneting in and issuing commands and or setting up a tfpd server. Both of which are pretty easy.
  9. I do this every couple of years. I've been a long time Slackware user (since '97, I think version 3.3). When Slackware dropped Gnome I've been kinda evaluating different distros / Unix based OS's, although I'm still using it. Some of the OS's I've tried recently include: Ubuntu OpenSuse Zenwalk Slitaz Debris CrunchBang OpenSolaris On my list yet to try are: Arch Mint Vector Hell I may even revisit the BSD's
  10. If you are referring to a Fonera 2100 then checkout the Open-Mesh firmware over at Open-Mesh.com. Their Open-Mesh Mini Router is the same hardware as a Fonera 2100.
  11. so why the offset of -9 when I want the last 8 characters of the sequence in the file? I think it's because it counts the newline at the end of the seqeunce as well. consider the following when the sequence is assigned to a variable: #!/usr/bin/perl $dna = "tgatccatcc"; $chunk = substr($dna, -8, 8); print "$chunk\n"; This will return atccatcc
  12. Yes you can use substr. You just have to use a negative offset. I use it regularly for manipulating DNA sequences. Let's say I have a file that contains the following sequence: tcatccatcc to return the last 8 characters, which would be atccatcc, I use: perl -ne 'print substr($_, -9, 8), "\n"' dna Hope this helps.
  13. Am I correct in assuming that I should be using the openwrt-atheros-root.squashfs file when flashing using the Piranha procedure? Because the procedure found here is using the jffs2 filesystem image. Under what circumstances would I use the jffs2 image instead of the squashfs image? I see their sizes are quite different.
  14. Thank you for the info. This will definitely get me started. I hope you don't mind me asking a few more questions later on. I did notice that the build procedure you use produces two files: openwrt-atheros-root.squashfs and openwrt-atheros-vmlinux.lzma which are used to flash the Fon. However I noticed on OpenWrt's site that to flash the WRT54G you only need a single bin file. Can you clarify the difference for me? Why hot have a single bin file to flash the Fon with? Is this something that's hardware dependent? Thanks again...!
  15. @digininja, would you be willing to share your experience in building the Jasager firmware you put together? I'm interested in learning how to do this and would greatly appreciate any links you can share. More specifically I'm interested in the process of how you bundled everything together.
  16. Well isn't that interesting. Thank you XP. Well at least we know what causes the problem. Thanks digininja...! So the solution appears to be to define each wireless network as nonbroadcast within Windows XP. Something of which most if not all users will never do. I tested this in my lab and it works perfectly. My notebook connected to Jasager thinking it was my normal wireless network of which its name appears just fine in the list of available wireless netoworks. Exactly how is should work. I'm still not sure I understand why Microsoft chose to create a random wireless network name when parking the adapter. This only creates unnecessary probe requests for randomly named wireless networks. Of which won't get any response back unless Jasager is running close by.
  17. Where's the demo taking place, on the base? Is it open to the public?
  18. yes it happens every time in XP. The kismet dump file is here. Let me know if that's not what you wanted. With Karma already enabled, I started Kismet on my netbook and then about a minute later brought up the wireless device on my XP notebook. Using tcpdump to look at the dump shows some very weird probe responses such as: 19:35:31.565931 Probe Response (^F^L^T^H^B^N^X^W^S^F^C^N^B^]^M^U^Q^F^U^]^M^H^I^[^P^G^Q^S^V^E^X^F) [1.0* 2.0* 5.5* 6.0 9.0 11.0* 12.0 18.0 Mbit] CH: 5 So what do you think?
  19. Probably should have looked a little harder as I see others have had this problem as discussed in this thread: http://hak5.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=11859 However there was no clear explanation what could be causing it.
  20. In my lab I've got Jasager running on a Fonera 2100. When I try to connect to a wireless network using my "test" notebook I get the following in the Wireless Connection screen in Windows XP. Actually I get this using two different notebooks: Acer Aspire One (Atheros) and an old HP Omnibook with a Netgear Rangemax pmcia card. Anyone have any idea what is causing this? The garbled one's are those SSID's that Jasager is pretending to be. The others are actual live AP's.
  21. Just wondering what kinds of hardware projects others have been working on to maybe spark some new ideas. I've become very interested in embedded linux and now I've become addicted to Fon/Accton hardware thanks to the Jasager project. I'm interested in hearing what other kind of hardware people are working with and what you are doing with it. I've thought about buying a Soekris box or maybe an Alix board to play with. The Beagleboard looks like fun too. Or maybe even one of these: http://www.mini-box.com/Samsung-S3C2440A-400MHz
  22. this link may give you a bit of information: http://hackaday.com/2006/07/01/fun-fon-hacking/ In the comments they discuss the heartbeat tying it to: http://download.fon.com/heartbeat.php?mac= The link is a bit outdated so YMMV.
  23. Trying googling the first part of the clue. Then use the force, err, I mean the source. ;-)
  24. After they revealed all on the live show last night I don't think it will hurt being more specific. Especially since they already have winners. The code on the first part can be decoded at rot13.com Google rot13 to learn more about it. It's very simple and you can have a lot of fun with it. I won't give away anymore in case people still want to have fun searching.
