Subject:Not cloacked network but no SSID
Date:14:43:44 10/04/2006

Kismet says the network is not cloaked, however it doesn't show me a SSID entry in the dump files (not even the "typical" <no ssid> dummy value). Thats why I supposed that the AP was not sending beacons (or something like that).

Thank you again
