hello

well the thing is like that:

i have a wireless network at home and its not secured - tryed to password protect the network, but its kinda slow, or gettign dissconected alot. so i left it open

my question is:
can i know who is on my wireless network and have fun with them?
are there any tools to sniff my own network and find some nice info about those people who mooch my network?

if there is a nice commercial software as well it will be great. i dont mind the cost of it.

Have been busy looking into network forensics myself lately, but that's just snooping imho, not done on private networks and not that much fun anyway..

A long time back I saw a tool here with which you could 'flip all pictures' and stuff like that by rewriting http traffic, but couldn't remember the name. looked for a while but can't seem to find it back. Even though I 'know' I replied on the topic..

Wouldn't be of much help to you > was a linux program and you'll need to run you'r own linux router to use it..

anywayz, if you're looking into network forensics, try looking here:

mac blocking is an option, but easy to spoof if you know what you're doing.. Backtrack has machanger installed by default, sure there are some win progs out there that do this as well but never tried any myselves.. look around.

You could install a true hub between your wireless router and your internet connection. Plug your computer into the hub and watch the traffic with wireshark.

I remember this. Luckily for me, i remembered what it was :P http://ex-parrot.com...own-ternet.html

Just check your access log on your wireless router and it will show you which mac adresses have connected. If other people connect and you want to have fun, you could do basicly anything you want. They are now on your network. Sniffing the traffic for anything juicy might be of some interrest, but most people wouldn't do personal/sensitive stuff on someone elses network. Maybe some kiddie porn though, its not really wise leaving your network opened, it could come back and bite you in the arse. You could set up a real honey pot hower... might be too much effort though.

still think it was a different one.. used something more like a grep function on the http level.. but this one looks to be able to do so as well..

Just remember.... an unprotected access point works both ways and can allow someone to snoop in on you.

How were you trying to password protect the network? Seems kind of strange to me that you'd have connection problems simply due to wireless encryption which should be native to the router.

my thoughts exactly.
the encryption shouldn't create connectivity issues. as long as you dont forget your key that is.
there are many tools available for free that will monitor network traffic. wireshark is an oldy but goody. however, most antivirus software as wifi detection and filtering. but i run ubuntu and there seems to be more tools for that OS for this type of thing.

You wage wars, murder, cheat, lie to us and try to make us believe it's for our own good, yet we're the criminals. Yes, I am a criminal. My crime is that of curiosity. I am a hacker, and this is my manifesto." Huh? Right? Manifesto? "You may stop me, but you can't stop us all."

i think you can for your network wifi security not publish SSID and using of mac address filtering is better way

1. Secure your network with higher wireless security? wpa and above
2. Mac filtering for your computers
3. Secure your network with password protection

well if you want to have some fun, put a honeypot file that seems really attractive and tempt them to run it with a backdoor,

also u can try to use triangulation software to locate them

If you are looking to just snoop network traffic and you are on the same connectiong (in this case an open wireless connection) you could use such tools as Wireshark and tcpdump to access and analyze the network traffic.  Wireshark is a great tool for capturing and analyzing network information, so much so that few users ever really understand the power that they hold in their hands.  You can find more information about wireshark at http://www.wireshark.org/
