RE: Rouge Wireless AP

ManageEngine do have some free versions of their software, which is what I use for simple reporting on servers and high 
interest devices.  However as I said before, depending on the company, the investment in the full version might be 
worth it.

My biggest problem with Linux is: You get what you pay for, whether it's in cash or labor hours.

Or kismet, which is passive, rather than actively probing like NetStumbler does.  Since it does not rely on probing to 
detect networks, and rather just listens for any wifi traffic, it will detect APs even if they have their SSID 
broadcast disabled, and won't give you away as someone searching for the rogue AP.  kismet is also open source, if that 
matters to you at all.  It also has built-in GPS support, through the gpsd daemon.

I'm pretty sure kismet in the BackTrack live cd, so if you run that (no installation needed), you can run kismet 
without the hassle of installing a new OS (linux) and compiling kismet.  It's possible you may have driver issues for 
your wifi card, however.

How about NetStumbler? Or mini stumbler? They find any wireless ap's 
and tell you how strong their signals are and SSID's if needed. It's 
'free' so feel free to donate!

What is harder is tracking them down or triangulating position. 
NetStumbler has some GPS integration which could help you with 'maps'.

We have residential homes with PC's installed, Internet access, and 
I know there are people installing there own wireless Aps during 
overnight shifts because they ones we have installed are secured.  
I know there are a lot of ways to find out, but is there any 
relatively small application that can be installed on a PC to 
identify either the rouge AP or laptop connecting to the network?

Thanks - Steven
