    Is the network protected with WPA? If so, you ought to be able to configure the clients to only connect to your AP if the connection was made with a supplied password (because he doesn't know your password).

    Of course, there is a weakness here, which is that your clients will likely try authenticating with his AP with their secret key and he could see what keys they are trying to use.

    Does this attack have a name -- where you create an AP with the same name as a WPA protected AP then sniff off the passwords as clients try to connect to you?

    I've heard people refer to it as the "evil twin".
    Ask questions on the open forums, that way everybody benefits from the solution, and everybody can be corrected when they make mistakes. Don't send me private messages asking questions that should be asked on the open forums, I won't respond. I decline all "Friend Requests".
