    1. You could find the info yourself. It's not that difficult.
    2. Why shouldn't we ask if what you're doing is legal. I'll ask anytime i find a claim suspicious.
    3. You cough up a reason (a legal one) why you want to know and I'll explain with due apologies for being suspicious.

    Don't come here getting all upset when someone suspects you of doing something illegal and you have not bothered to show otherwise.
    That is one of the fundamentals of using this site.
    Your contribution to this site is lacking as well. As such don't expect others to do your basic research for you.

    I obtained this from my research on detecting hidden essid.

    1. Use airodump-ng to capture in the channel of the hidden essid.
    2. Note the bssid of the AP and the mac of a connected client.
    3. Use aireplay-ng to force a deauth. Since association and re-association packets contain the essid whether hidden or not, when the client reconnects, your airodump-ng session should capture the essid and report that in your session window.

    This is what i got, but i don't have the mac of a connected client.

    Can somebody add to this or give an alternate method.

    Guys, your suspicions are confirmed. There's your proof in the defendant's own words.

    I should be glad that I was right, but I'm not.

    We do not know, but since you are not explaining what you are up to, we are not telling you, very simple.
