Subject:seeing strange behavior from an ap
Date:23:22:16 16/01/2010

I'm seeing some seemingly weird activity from a particular access point, I'm hoping someone might be able to explain.

It's a cloaked SSID and it's doing strange stuff:

The channel constantly switches amongst 1, 6 and 11; and it constantly switches from Wep encryption to No encryption as well.

Additionally, the Beacon is at 100%, and it generates lots of packets - all Mgmt.

... any ideas? I'm not familiar enough with this stuff to tell whether that thing's a suspicious/potential security threat or not.
