RE: About War Driving ..



Ok so other than restricting MAC addresses to only your machines and
having a WEP 128b enabled wireless network, what other measure could one
take to prevent this?

This might work... but if they can crack WEP chances are they can spoof
mac
addresses as well

How about blocking the MAC ADDRESS? of those two computers IPs?

most wireless routers have an allow/disallow MAC Filter

You could try nbtstat -A 192.168.1.246. Netbios is turned on by

on a windows pc and if they don't have a firewall turned on this will
tell you the machine name and if it is a pc on a corporate domain or
not. Sometimes people or corporations name their pcs with the
company_name1, or username. It might give you a place to start
looking.

Hi ,
I was wondering if it is possible to locate and catch
a guy who is connecting to our wep wireless network
and downloading stuff from torrents and using up our
bandwidth ..
I checked up with arp scan and found 2 unknown IPs
192.168.1.246 and 247
Is there anyway of locating the guy in a building of 7
floors and how to stop this ..I have tried changing
the Wep keys so . he is cracking the wep key.
Any Suggestion People ?

Did you think on rising up encryption to WPA... and may be use of
Radius

server for authentication. It would help a lot.
