Subject:ANY HELP OR COMMENT PLEASE. I see an SSID of an AP that keeps changing.

I am using a 2005 version Kismet on my WRT54GS V1.1 loaded with DD-WRT V24 firmware. I have used Kismet for over 2 years to monitor any rogue wifi activity around my network within my neighborhood. I am running Kismet in promiscuous mode, and I see one particular AP that keeps changing its SSID every few seconds, i.e "002/003/004/005/006/007/008/009", then "LoyolaNet, then "NetHound", then "Home (test)", then "default", then "wireless", etc....
The client associated with this AP occasionally sends out "probe requests" as an un-associated client.

I read in a similar post that someone saw an SSID change between two different names, and it was related to VLAN sending data, or not. I don't believe this to be true in my case.

Has anyone else seen what I have described? What do you make of this?

Thanks in advance,
