Subject:BSS network but BSSID != AP Mac address
Date:15:52:34 12/07/2013

I'm writing a network element mapping tool, and I was wondering if there are out there situations or implementations which go against the 802.11 std, using different values for BSSID and AP MAC address.
I'm also wondering, if there are Multiple SSIDs with same BSSID, how knows Kismet with which one is an STA associated? The only way of knowing this would be to listen to a Mgmt frame like (Prob/Assoc/Auth) when STA is doing the assoc process.

Does kismet support multiple BSSID List/SSID List IE ( 802.11std or Vendor ) of any kind?

┬┐How handles Kismet those situations?

Thanks in advance!
