I want to setup a wireless AP NOT connected to the internet in infrastructure mode.
I have a junk 2wire that has big problems with wired connections but the wireless is fine, and a old p2 laptop if necessary.
I want it to be completely open and when someone connects to it and attempts to access a web page for the AP to drop the packet request for the webpage and return something like... "Stealing someone's wireless is illegal." (then it states a little about the state laws). I can build the simple html page that says this no problem. I just dont know how to implement it.
The other day I decided to open a wireless router not connected to anything but the pc I used to change the settings for and sniff it out using airodump-ng on my bt3 laptop. In less than 5 minutes I had 5 people connected sending several packets. What I assume to be http requests or whatnot. I don't want this to do anything malicious and it should not do anything until an http request or GET is sent. That request will be immediately dropped and the html page that states wireless stealing is a crime is sent.
Any ideas as to where I might start looking for this? I'm not even sure what it would be called.
A third party security audit is the IT equivalent of a colonoscopy. It's long, intrusive, very uncomfortable, and when it's done, you'll have seen things you really didn't want to see, and you'll never forget that you've had one.
Well I figured I would plug the laptop into the Internet Port instead of the Ethernet LAN ports.
Google for the Zone CD. Run it on an old PC connected to the AP. It will do everything you need, including handing out the DCHP addresses, and running the walled garden http page.
Stop the TSA now! Boycott the airlines.
Nice find on the ZoneCD I've been looking at setting something like this up as well. also I like the crime message via walled garden. Something you might look into also hhmatt81 http://www.controlap.com but it appears to be down at this time.
Careful, may not be safe if you have finer sensibilities.
