  1. I had some time earlier and did some research and learned a few things, but I had one idea on how triangulate a wifi. Any way that you could use three usb radios and karma and just calculate it based on the microtime of the computer in which the signal was received? The goal is not a missile guidance system so the resolution doesn't have to be great, just enough to give the pineappler a fair gauge of where the ap or client he/she is in relation to the pineapple. I have this image stuck in my head of a radar screen with little pineapples to pin the locations of APs...
  2. It is my understanding that you can triangulate any signal as long as you have at least 3 radios to pick up on it and you have to sync up each of the triangulating radios timer chips with each other.
  3. I haven't had a chance to look into it yet to satisfy my curiosity but I figure you can do it somehow using a microcontroller and linking it to all the APs UARTs or something. Just thought it would be cool to have a 'radar' screen of hotspots.
  4. Hey All, Just curious, has anyone every tried using three of the mark IVs (or whatever combo of 3) to triangulate an AP? I worked on a project a couple years ago with a little robot that was controlled via wifi, and in the design phase the idea on how to tell the position of the robot was to triangulate it using four routers positioned around the room and to calculate it based on the timing of the signal received at each AP. But it became clear that it would be extremely challenging to calculate it within any degree due to difficulty in syncronizing all four APs timers and precise placemen
