Client location / tracking...
I was wondering what other folks are doing for "client location" in cases where you have a problem with a client, random interference, trying to locate a stolen device, etc. We are an Aruba shop and have Airwave, which will get you in the general vicinity; but in crowded or multi-floor buildings it's really just a rough guesstimate. There are numerous tracking / pinging / location utilities for identifying APs, but not that much for tracking actual clients. I would guess you need a promiscuous mode wireless adapter/driver combination and some sort of directional antenna at the very least, but rather than second guess myself and start playing around with Pringles cans I thought I'd ask first rather than reinventing the wheel.
