    Default BSSID in airodump

    I have done this with great success on bssid's that are 1 character long ex: "Wifi" but i am getting an error when entering a two character BSSID like "My Wifi"

    How to I enter two character long bssid's ?

    BSSID is the MAC address, not the name of the access point. It should be in the form of 00:11:22:33:44:55.
    "\x74\x68\x65\x70\x72\x65\x7a\x39\x38";

    I don't know if what you just said applies to my case but I know what i did wrong i did not put quotes around the BSSID ex. "My Wi-Fi". Well it worked!

    BSSID = MAC ADDRESS
    ESSID = "Your Pretty Wifi AP Name"

    Try learning 80211 and general computing basics before you go and do something foolish.

    You should contact aircrack-ng people as soon as possible cause you have developed a new feature after this there will be no need of essid parameter,I guess

    I think that's what wyze meant; that google is your friend. Do a bit of studying, reading this forum and using the search function above. Remember, especially, that GOOGLE IS YOUR FRIEND! And us, of course, welcome, Kurt
