    Default retrieving a hidden AP MAC address

    Hi guys, had a search on the site but couldnt find anything that my question needs, well I have found this wifi but the only problem is that it is a hidden network,

    I know its my neibours AP and I know the network name but dont know how or what software to use to retrieve the AP's MAC addy, can anyone advise on which software tool to use, I am useing BT3 live CD,

    I successfully cracked my wep key, so I am comfortable with the commands, any help would be greatly appreciated,

    scint...

    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69

    You might have your neighbor's permission, but that doesn't really matter.

    Means the AP does not belongs to you.
