blackriver Posted July 13, 2011 Share Posted July 13, 2011 I was trying to explain the workings of Airodump-ng to someone when it occurred to me I don't fully understand what the "#Data"-column is trying to show. I always assumed these were "interesting" packets, i.e. packets generated by an actual user instead of say beacons (although the manual says it's the "number of captured data packets, including data broadcast packets"). I was wondering if anyone knew how Airodump-ng determines if it sees a data packet. I tried to google but couldn't find an answer. So is it perhaps one of these? All packets minus beacons? Only TCP (and maybe UDP) packets? All packets that have a source and destination? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
