    This should get you started with wireshark: http://www.wireshark.org/download/do...r-guide-a4.pdf

    But both airodump-ng and kismet are able to tell you whether there currently are any clients connected to an AP as well.

    If I were you I'd go pick up a book on the subject. I'd post a link, but I'm on my iPhone.... Search here for theprez98, or Thorn, they are both authors of some really good books on this subject.
    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

    Thanks for all the quick help Tron, I really appreciate it.

    You say airodump-ng tells if there's any clients connected? Where does that show up? I'm going to take a guess and say it's the #/s column? Because for every AP I see the number is 0. lol. Thanks again

    @ Secure it:
    Yeah, I'm obviously a noob. I mean, I'm posting in the NEWBIE section after all, even when I'm able to post anywhere else in the forum. I will gladly read up on how encryption works, but I don't think it's nessesary to call me a noob. I know how my router works inside and out for the most part, other than the encryption business. But that's what I'm here for. + I've used Slax and Ubuntu before, so this isn't complete jibberish to me.

    The column that you are referring to simply shows the number of data packets the AP is transmitting per second. The clients will in airodump-ng show up under the second half of the screen, after the second BSSID column. Once a client connects to the AP you will be able to see the MAC of the client under STATION and the MAC of the AP it is connected to under BSSID.

    Aaaahh, that's what that is.. Much appreciated! I'm going to connect a few things to my network wirelessly, see what it all look like. I'm another happy customer, thanks.

    Buy the book, Practical Packet Analysis. It will teach you all about packets, and how to use Wireshark to perform the analysis.
