  • My PoS wardriving setup

    Just got my stuff for wardriving and iam excited. Heres my PoS setup

    ORiNOCO Gold
    Garmin eTrex Legend
    Compaq Presarion 1245 AMD K6/2
    Netstumbler
    Microsoft MapPoint
    (various cables etc..)

    Iam thinking the laptop will suck to much to work. What do you all think?

    That is a pretty basic setup, and _should run fine. All last year my primary stumbling box was a Presario 1240 233MMX/64mb. Is this a theoretical setup or something?? The best way to know is to actually.. I dunno, hop in the car and try it..? :)
    if it gets me nowhere, I'll go there proud; and I'm gonna go there free.

          Nope but its awful old, and Iam planning to get a new laptop anyways but figured I would try it with this one first.

            There is no pain in trying, just set it in the seat next to you, and crank up the volume, so you can hear the AP goodness around you.....:D

                    Uhm, have you not seen these people yet? It may not be unintentionally open nodes, but Portland isn't exactly the virgin territory you imagine it to be. Assuming that you are in Portland, OR, and not one of the other six Portlands.

                      Yes...I think the only "virgin" territory I have found is Fairbanks Alaska. At the time I did it (last July) no one had before. Not sure if that is still the case though.
                      perl -e 'print pack(c5, (41*2), sqrt(7056), (unpack(c,H)-2), oct(115), 10)'

                        Nor-Cal is still unmapped, even Sacramento hadnt been maped till I was there. If you looking to find some APs come to Nor-Cal.

                          Yeah Portland, OR and thanks for the reference. I might try wardriving the surrounding areas (e.g. Gresham, Troutdale) but I dont know how many AP's I will find, I'm not to optimistic.

                            POS LAPTOP - I Think NOT.

                            I'm using a p166 with kismet and it works fine. It's not the laptop, but the card and antenna that really make the difference.

                            The maps at http://crackrock.org were done in about 4 hours using a senao card, and a single directional antenna. Most of it during rush hour on my way to / from work.

                            Give it a shot, the orinoco is a decent card. You might be surprised at what you find.

                            Good Luck.

                              Yea so by the looks of it everything is going to work out pretty good. I Picked up that 5dbi magnetic mounted antenna that BW suggested.
