This is mostly refactored from the WirelessLinks page which is now large enough that it's mostly useless. This page is for Linux client software which relates to wireless networking. -- AdamShand

- Wellenreiter - GTKPerl Wireless netwrok discovery/penetration/monitor tool.
- Wellenreiter is a GTK/Perl wireless network discovery and auditing tool. Prism2, Lucent, and Cisco based cards are supported. Its scanner window can be used to discover access-points, networks, and ad-hoc cards. It detects essid broadcasting or non-broadcasting networks and detects WEP capabilities and the manufactor automaticly. Dhcp and arp traffic will be decoded and displayed to give you further informations about the networks. A flexible sound event configuration lets it work in unattended. An ethereal / tcpdump-compatible dumpfile can be created. GPS is used to track the location of the discovered networks immediately. Automatic associating is possible with randomly generated MAC addreses. Wellenreiter runs also on low-resolution devices that can run GTK/Perl and Linux/BSD (such as iPaqs). An uniq Essod-bruteforcer is now included too.
