40MHz MIMO, 80211n




I went garage sale shopping briefly today with a friend, this is what I found:
1apple macintosh minitower (not so mini) 266 MHZ processor 32M SDRAM,
floppy 9G UW hard drive, CD, ZIP, 512K cache, 6M SGRAM, AV (not sure what that is, wikipedia tells me that AV may mean:

may mean:Adult video,AltaVista,Alterac_Valley, Alternative Vote, Angela_Via, Anguilla, Antelope Valley, Anti-virus, Artificial_vagina, Audio-visual, Authorised Version, Avatar (virtual reality), Avenue, Average, Avianca, IATA, Arcade Volleyball, Approval voting, a month in the Hebrew calendar, attovolt, Avar language)

wew =) guess ill find out about that one. Anywho... all that for the price of a cup of Grande Vanilla latte, soy no foam+tip ($5).

I got a KVM switch with two ports, but needs a 9v power adaptor. and possible a second set of wires (i might have that here already). $1

A book case, for free, A 486 WB-U1 main board, $1

So for $7.00, I had a good morning and more crap to play with.
----------------------------------------------

Last night was the 2600 meet. fR and I got a ride with craSH and Jvoss to seattle were we picked up octal. Along the way Jvoss filled us in on his trip to Japan, while I asked him endless questions.

The convention center downtown where this group meets every month doesnt even like us meeting there, on top of that the bathrooms were locked up, the wireless was futile (pay per, and not enough traffic to find a working bootp packet off a ten minute tcpdump).

At any rate, Shinobi made it from elensburge, wish he didnt live so far, hes very excited about getting together to hack, unfortunately the 2600 scene here in seattle is not conducive to group projects, like Seattle Wireless or Neg9 is. Before you conclude that im bashing, dont, just merely pointing out the flavor of the two meetings Ive been to. cool people, but more of a scene environment that a learning place. (feel free to comment and call me an idiot, this is imho. But remember that there are a lot of free blogs out there, so start blogging and say whatever you like, be free...)

So Jvoss helped me with getting my prism II card configured correctly so it would run in monitor mode.

problem was ubuntu was recognizing it as a prism I lsmod showed orinoco_cs and hostap. J pointed out that even the prism I supported monitor.

steps I took to correct it were
lsmod
modprobe -r (module name, also remember that no 'r' loads the driver)
cardctl eject
pluged it back in
modprobe -r again...
iwconfig wlan0 mode monitor
ifconfig wlan0 (any IP address)
sudo tcpdump -i (interface) -w ~/Desktop/whereever.pcap

im going to put Win Server 2K3 (of coarse I paid full price for the enterprise edition licence) in VMware, downloaded the longterm trial version of solar wind (a $900 dollar utility for managing your cisco network) from there website at www.piratebay.org . Looking for an old cisco switch or router for less than $100 just so I can learn the IOS. then ill telnet from minicom into the switch or from the W2K3 box with hyperterminal(wait someone said theres something better than hyperterminal). word... as the west coast hackers say =)

Discord helped me with network-manager, not to be confused with this crappy network admin tool that was a standard ubuntu gnome feature. This one was supposed to take the sting out of wpa-supplicant, and the pain in the ass string of commands required every time you move around to a new AP.
sudo ifconfig eth0 down
password
sudo ifconfig eth1 up
sudo iwlist scan
sudo iwconfig eth1 essid "any"
sudo dhclient eth1

oh, 5 minutes latter your page wont load, WTF!, how did I get bumped from CoffeeandComics to seattle wi-fi (dont confuse this worthless piece of crap AP with the good folks at seattle wireless dot net).
sudo iwlist scan, sudo sudo sudo sudo Judo.... dam...

well anyway this network manager thing wont load, wont run, but is installed. Now if Discord and fR cant help you, buddy you had better be writing books on wireless foo, and the 'g'-nome desktop if you can figure that one out.

oh well, I need the practice typing anyway.

So its back to the shipyard grind on monday.
