Hello everyone, I tried posting this in the Beginner's Forum yesterday, but upon closer examination that isn't the right area for it so I'm posting a new thread here. (I'm new to the forum so I don't know if the mods will even post it there.)
When doing a general "Airodump-ng" in my area I see normal traffic except for one router with the following properties:
BSSID = 00:00:00:00:00:00
ESSID = <Length: 0>
Channel = detected on 6 and 11
Power = varies from about -68 to -79 every three seconds.
Beacons = about 23 per second
Data = 1 after two hours of monitoring
I've found two other instances of this with little help as to what it might be:

Can anyone help me figure out what this thing is and if I should be concerned about it?Last month, the video was showing the injection test on the N900. If you watch carefully, you can note that one of the BSSID is 00:00:00:00:00:00. I first thought it was a bug in aircrack-ng but it's not. I was told it's a unconfigured AP. It only sends beacons and jumps on different channels. If you're as curious as me, here is a capture file with just a beacon.
