Just a little update, I am still working on the 1-disk wardriving linux version, I've been working with a bunch of different sources and will hopefully have something soon, since today was my last day of college! @$%^&@$%& time to work somewhere, yet to be determined.
Greg at turnpoint.net as some Wireless links including a video and the antenna shootout.
Our Dept of Defence has been using unsecure wireless cameras, ouch.

I just picked up the US Robotics USR2410, it's a Prism2 chipset and basically the same as the SMC card which can have an antenna jack soldered on, my next project. :)
Here is another pic, a user submission from Nic, his pringles setup.

Need to search for a specific Wireless AP? Try the Hotspot search
It's okay, needs more people to submit sites though.

Wardriving/Warwalking Equipment examples:
The Ipaq is in the cradle, hooked to the gps cable with a null modem conenctor. Runs ministumbler.
I'll make a new section if people submit pictures.

Frank Keeney has a weekly wireless show, last week he talked about the wireless issues Best Buy and other retailers were having. Also he adds that "the AP's in Home Depot are for their phones. However I've also seen Lucent wireless equiment mounted on the wall for this. I must assume that HD also uses wireless scanners for inventory and pricing."
-also the Icom IC-3 might not pick up all the X-10 camera channels, but I don't have on to test it out. :(
A reader contributed "SNIFFER TECHNOLOGIES, A division of Network Associates, announced a new product designed to sniff wireless networks using a PDA"
It's an IPAQ with special software, MiniStumbler does a great job.
If anyone has information or software for the Prism 1 802.11b chipset, please let me know. There are laptops and devices that have wireless embeded but use a different prism chipset.
