I'm seeing several rogue networks in our residence halls that are not like others I've seen before. They have these characteristics: - BSSID has a mac address that has a vendor code that doesn't exist when I try to look it up. - The SSID is type infrastructure - They are mostly 2.4ghz but I see one that's 5ghz - As long as I'm making correct assumptions, I believe I see them both from our Xirrus equipment and our HP MSM equipment. Xirrus reports the SSID as "(blank)" and HP reports it as "??????????" I take that to mean that there is no SSID name being broadcast. The HP and Xirrus equipment are in different buildings so I can't see the same rogue network from both types of equipment to compare. I'm wondering if anyone has seen networks like this before, and knows what sort of device might be creating them. -- Adam Forsyth Director of Network and Systems Luther College Library and Information Services 700 College Drive Decorah, IA 52101 563-387-1402 ********** Participation and subscription information for this EDUCAUSE Constituent Group discussion list can be found at
