  1. My interests range beyond just an interest in hacking wifi...ham radio and I'll go out looking for causes of interference...having something frequency agile is convenient at times....I don't have a social life, don't play well with others...and mom rarely lets me out of the basement....
  2. I did even better...I ordered a HackRF One today...that will let me passively monitor all sorts of stuff....of course, pulling all those little radio parts around on a screen will be interesting....thanks for the comment...
  3. Is it possible to include a timestamp to associate with aps that show up? One could then start analyzing time of day when certain aps appear and disappear in those that come and go. Or is there something out there that does that already?
  4. I'm not going to get rid of having antennas connected...but since these are providing diversity, I should be able to put a 2.4ghz yagi on one port to sniff around with and one for 5ghz on the other port. If I just look for 2.4 APs, the yagi for that band should be selected and if I look for 5 ghz, the other should be selected. I may have to play a bit. I'm also looking at a HackRF ONE so I can snoop on more. I currently have two different MAC addresses that show as "Hidden" on 5 ghz. I'm trying to find out what they are. One is very strong and could possibly be the AP for my cameras...the other, I'm not sure. And now I find that my electric meter is using RF in the 2.4 area....kinda interested in that. With the SDR, I can use it as a poor man's spectrum analyzer and look at some of these wayward items. Really, I'm not nuts, there is a method to my madness....thanks for the comments and info...I'll put that in the Pineapple book to remind me.
  5. I wish to use some directional antennas for both 2.4 and 5 ghz. I'm not interested in diversity at this point, I am doing "recon" in a specific direction. I'm not sure if both wlan0 and wlan1 are in use during "Recon" (I'm still learning, the book is very good but not as detailed as i would like to see...some type of table as to what uses both lans and which do not. I would think both are in use during a Recon mission. Can anyone provide more info?
  6. Wondering what the specs are for bandwidth of radios in the Pineapple Tetra. Digital power meters use frequencies somewhere around the 2.4ghz WiFi signals. Curious to see what they say and wondering if the Tetra can be used to listen to them (no way would I try to lower my electric bill...trust me, I'm from the government and I'm here to help) I'm sure they would find little humor if they found someone that was altering what the power meter (gas meters too...some places even water meters)...
  7. That will be this evening, correct? 7 pacific? and I'm on east coast so I have to stay up late (I'm an old fart, to bed with the chickens and wake up with a pig)
  8. Thank you! I hope you get paid extra for putting up with idiots like me. I appreciate you taking the time.
  9. Thanks, that is a big help....and to turn back off?
  10. So if red or blue are on and active, RF is on? And if they aren't on, RF is off? And if RF is off, how to turn it on and if on, how to turn it off? The book is quite good but doesn't go into the level of detail that I would like to se...
  11. Does anyone know if there is anything simple inside that I could use to tell if WiFi is on or off? I'm looking at situation where I absolutely, positively cannot do any emissions. Was thinking perhaps hooking a small LED indicator. The display LEDs seem to have a mind of their own..
  12. I haven't tried running the script yet so I can't help...but I'm following. I have Kali on a Pi...hope to get it hooked up this week.
  13. Just my two cents, the WN722N has an RP SMA. Hooking a 15dbi yagi to it...need to get out and away from clutter...
  14. Thank you! Ideally, an editor would let you read from any source...but, you are correct, the disk editor is the direction I need to go...at lesat for now. Thanks for the response!
  15. I did a search for a hex editor but surprisingly, didn't find anything listed...I think it is operator error4 and I apologize if I f'd up. I want to be able to read the files on a disk, thumb drive, etc. I'd like to be able to massage the MBR in Windows....way back in the dark ages some guys writing security software for PCs for the government where I was at gave me a debug routine to fix the MBR that they had massaged. I was doing computer repair back in those days....but a lot of beer washed away all those brain cells. Once DOS 5.0 came out with fdisk /mbr, the software was obsolete. but, I would like to be able to see those first bits that are read...I have hexedit for windows...but, haven't gotten in to it. Will check to see if there is one for Ubuntu...thought I would ask for those more intelligent than I (every user on here)
  16. Actually not bad....just about same as i was getting with a smaller, gasoline fueled truck (14L/100). Tank isn't as big as I would like (27 gallons US, 102 Liters) but gives about 400 miles (close to 645 kilometers). I had to look up conversions but they are close. The 17L/100 is about what the gas engine gets in an F-250. Not sure where you are...I've been in Stuttgart, DE...I sure would not want me truck there...SMART car makes much more sense.
  17. Kinda like my ham radio handhelds....my Kenwood has one style, the Baofeng has the other. For all I know, they are made on the same manufacturing line in China. Just another little bump in the road...
  18. I'm only large in the girth...5'10 and 230...used to look like Charles Atlas (if anyone is old enough to remember him), barrel chest, 6 pack abs. Too many 6 packs, chest sank to stomach. A lot of big guys had those itty bitty VW pickups. I love my truck...will be the last one I own.
  19. That adapter has the darn RP connector on it...I'm learning all about RP and standard SMA connectors the hard way....
  20. My name is Tim Tapio Favorite game: Not a gamer but did just purchase a PS4 with several Black Ops that I am clueless to play. I picked up Farming Simulator though, hopefully that will be something I can handle. Minecraft was a bit beyond me as well (I went to a small school) Favorite OS: DOS 5.0 or Win 95, working on Ubuntu and Kali though, do I get points for that? Putting Kali on a Raspberry Pi, Black Arch also... Favorite console: PS4 because that is what I have. Nationality: US Accent: Generic with a proliferation of sarcasm...formerly well versed in using "F" word Sex: Male Age: From before rocks were formed...is there an age limit here? I am approaching senile senior citizen status (or maybe I passed it and forgot?) Race: White American Height: 5' 10" Status: Married....even with a child...but he's 25 Build: Typical balding, overweight with stomach hanging over belt (was told 20 years ago I had that "dad" look).... Favorite band: Tends to change...Beatles, Early Bee Gees (no disco please), Eagles, even Nickleback (If Today Was Your Last Day), Disturbed with "Sound of Silence" cover. U2, Midnite Oil...I think that's enough to start...favorite music era is late 60s...well, maybe not late, some 64 through 69 (a very good year I'm told) Favorite book: Atlas Shrugged I'm a true capitalist. Very conservative however, will listen to differing opinions if you extend the same courtesy to me.

Need to lift it...on 3rd or 4th childhood. Have no use for it...however, I love it. Occupation: Retired and on a relentless quest for knowledge. Studying cyber security/penetration testing. Currently reading TCP/IP Illustrated (I restart every other day and it's always new material), Cisco ICND-102 (first half of CCNA), Network+, Security+, setting up a Cisco lab...got a couple switches, couple routers. Scored a couple cable box/routers, adding in the aforementioned Raspberry Pi systems, once I have SSH enabled in the Cisco boxes, and the Pi's, will be trying to figure out SSH. Working on learning Ubuntu, got my Pineapple Tetra, want to play some in-house wifi tinkering...have a couple "hidden" APs in the neighborhood that I wish to learn a bit more about. Have a yagi with 15 dbi gain that I want to hook to Tetra to make it very directional (once I get SMA and SMA RP straight in my head)...might purchase a second, common mast....give me 18 dbi (strange how db works, would think get 30 db, also, only a doubling...so 3 db. I think I'm rambling...way too early to be up...
  21. I guess this should sere as a fair warning for those that it might apply to... https://www.hackread.com/hackers-can-identify-if-you-are-using-sex-toys-and-exploit-them/ Damn, who thinks of those things?
  22. Thank you...done. I'm still new here...
  23. Sorry...lack of attention to detail...
  24. So sad to hear of the passing of Kerby...after so many years, I know how it feels. And Kerby loved to be on camera.... Darren, you have my greatest sympathy...
  25. I'm not really doing "fox and hound" although that is an interesting idea. I live in a subdivision and with the Tetra, have discovered several "hidden" access points. I have a small,15 dbi gain yagi for 2.4ghz and wanted to be able to find out in which direction they are, then monitor then passively. I wanted to focus only on those without others also coming in to the system. If two antennas feed the same receiver, I am considering purchasing a second yagi. Also, some of these are not a real strong signal and the gain would be an added benefit. I'm a ham radio guy and have antennas outside. A couple small ones on a TV rotor won't attract any undue attention if I want to do that. Some really good coax and I wouldn't lose a lot of signal (that means no RG-58). However, that "fox and hound" is an interesting thought, I plan on doing that with a 2 meter system, trying to get some local hams involved. I ordered the dongle you listed...and could actually use it with Kali and perhaps get what I'm looking for without using the Tetra...but, the Tetra seems to have considerable gain over a standard wifi setup. Thanks for the comment and the idea.
