> Hi, does anyone know how Kismet distinguishes between the wired and wireless clients (stations). Does it for instance work it out from the lack of level 2 unencrypted packets that fly around the wireless network?

silly me should have searched the forum.....

"From_ds/to_ds determines what a client looks like. If the frames are all from_ds, then the client is assumed to be wired. Theres no way to tell other than that."

ds = distributed system ie the wired network....

that makes sense, cisco writeup on it appears to be wrong, but who knows?
