Greetings Gl users.
I have noticed that even though I have my SSID hidden on my Slate
When I do a wi-fi scan with an app such as Ning or WiFiInfoView the router still broadcasts its manufacturer and model. Is there a way to remove all secondary info
from my Wi-Fi signal and make the router’s make and model unrecognizable to potential snoopers?
Thank you for taking the time to review my question.
Maybe you can change your Mac address so that it cannot match the Mac to the manufacturer.
As for the SSID, you cannot hide it if there is a client connect to the AP (SSID) It’s your client connect to AP that is broadcasting this which gives the game away.
Thank you for the reply sammo!
I noticed that I can spoof the wan MAC when connected with a udp cable, but can you help me spoof the wireless broadcasted one?
Any idea where i can find the configuration settings for the MAC in openwrt?
Via SSH, in /etc/config/wireless
config wifi-device ‘radio0’
option type ‘mac80211’
option hwmode ‘11a’
option path ‘soc/soc:pcie/pci0000:00/0000:00:01.0/0000:01:00.0’
option htmode ‘VHT80’
option country ‘US’
option legacy_rates ‘1’
option channel ‘161’
config wifi-iface ‘default_radio0’
option device ‘radio0’
option mode ‘ap’
option macaddr ‘62:38:e0:cc:12:6a’
option ssid ‘The Promised LAN’
option encryption ‘psk2’
option key ‘*****’
option network ‘lan’
Thank you :=)
Will try it this weekend and let you know.
