    Default see all the AP's in the terminal

    Hi,

    I just have a new card, an alfa awus036h with 5dbi and want to ask how I can see all AP's in the terminal in BackTrack when there are too much?ATM I just can't see them, there are so many they won't fit the screen. Is there an option?

    Sorry, just see I posted in the wrong section.

    There are a bunch of options. Filtering options I mean. Filter by channel, encryption type, mac, associated clients, etc... Just type airodump-ng -h to see the options.

    Well, actually I want to see everything.
    I don't want to filter just want to see what the alfa is capable off.
    I have about 40/50 AP's in the terminal and they keep increasing rapidly then I just can't see them. I read about a file airodump saves, but I was unable to find it. There really are too much channels I am able too see ATM, I just would like to know how many. I am receiving full signal strenght from 300 meters away, which i am aware off and probably further.

    airodump-ng wlan0 > ap.txt
    Is this what you are talking about?

    You could always run multiple terminals each filtered by a different encryption type or something similar.

    -w /path/to/output will write output in many formats unless one is specifically selected. Read the man page

    On the task bar of a Konsole window you can see "Settings" hit that then scroll down to "Font" then choose "Shrink Font".
    However I do not think the "How To" section of the forums are for requesting help.

    Sometimes I try to fit a 16-character string into an 8–byte space, on purpose.

    Code:
     airodump-ng wlan0 > ap.txt
    Haven't tried this yet, but I will in the evening.
    It seems like there are at night a lot more AP's available. Could this be weather related? I mean the wind decreases here at night, or could this be a slight change of direction where the antenne is pointing at?

    I know, but as you missed out, I already edited my post when I saw this.

    Thanks

    Yes the air at night is not as dense and allows radio waves to travel easier.
