    Default AW: Re: Bachktrack stopped scanning after closing the notebook

    Most likely a magnet in the display somewhere that is tripping a hall effect sensor on the mobo. See if another magnet is more attracted to one spot on the display than the rest
    thats a good idea, i think i ask acer bevor i try to locate the magnet. in the moment i have only a 3kg magnet here... when i use this, i must reinstall all... :==)

    True dat. The trick I used to prevent it from totally closing is by placing a book beteween the keyboard and the lid
    Running both KDE and GNOME BT5 flawlessly. Thank you !

    I've been wardriving since at least Feb of 2004, that's what Wigle tells me anyway, and I've never connected to any of those networks. There are legitimate reasons to have your laptop running in your bag, just as there are illegitimate reasons.
    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

    Half the older guys on here used to post on the netstumbler forums too, streaker69 included. I just use my phone these days, there are some great tools out there for android users.

    I use wiglewifi. I really need to get my hacked wrt54g working again. Then I'd have kismet running instead of basically netstumbler.
