Subject:Detecting cards in monitor mode
Date:16:47:25 29/03/2006

I was wondering if there was any way to detect if there are any cards nearby in monitor mode. After seeing how easy it is to sniff wireless packets I'm being a lot more cautious now and trying to be smarter about what I do over wireless (my college won't secure the campus-wide wireless). My first thought is that detecting a card in monitor mode wouldn't be possible (it's just sitting there recieving) but I don't know that much about how it works, anyone know?
