    Default Cannot find BSSID ? any idea why?

    Ok so iv just started using backtrack 4

    am running a advent roma 2000:

    Advent Roma 2000 Intel® Celeron® 900 (2.2 GHz),
    Genuine Windows® 7 Home Premium,
    3072 MB ram
    Hard drive: 32ogb

    Wireless Built in card : " Realtek semiconductor co. ltd RTL8187SE wireless LAN controller (rev 22) "


    I have been trying to pen test some local wireless netowrks, the problem is i know am in range of a wireless AP because windows 7 displays it as a internet connection option but when i run the following codes bellow i cannot find the BSSID.

    Am i doing something wrong with my codes? (heres what am doing)

    Booting up from the live CD
    chooseing the first boot option (frame buffer something 1024x768)
    then use command: "startx"
    then the GUI loads
    I then open a command prompt
    i enter "airmon-ng start wlan0"
    i get conformation the wcard has turned on monitore mode
    i then type "airodump-ng wlan0"
    all i see is the titles like

    BSSID PWR Beacons #Data #/s CH MB ENC CIPHER AUTH ESSID

    i am not getting any of this

    BSSID PWR Beacons #Data #/s CH MB ENC CIPHER AUTH ESSID
    00:1C:58:AE:C3:01 -60 124 1 0 1 54 WPA2 CCMP PSK Network

    BSSID Station PWR Rate Lost Packets Probe

    Ahem...you're "pentesting" other people's wireless networks, obviously without having a single clue about what you are doing. This is illegal, it is not condoned here, nor will you get any help from us.

    Default Cannot find BSSID ? any idea why? Repost

    Quick note: last time i posted this my post was closed as the mod thought i was pentesting someone i never knew's wireless network. I think he may of thought this as i put "I have been trying to pen test some local wireless netowrks" by this i actually ment, my wireless network, my mates and my sister. This was because i wanted to see if it was to make sure it was the laptops error and not the AP's. I am sorry for any confusion on this matter.

    Well that Admin had good reason to believe that you are up to no good. So do I and as such generally after a mod or admin closes a thread that one makes it means not to open another one on the same topic.
    Your best bet would be to go and read on the subject. You will not get help here on it. We do not condone illegal activities of any sorts.
