Wellenreiter is a wireless network discovery and auditing tool, based on Linux OS. It can discover networks (BSS/IBSS), and detects ESSID broadcasting or non-broadcasting networks and their WEP capabilities and the manufacturer automatically. DHCP and ARP traffic is decoded and displayed to give you further information about the networks. An ethereal/tcpdump-compatible dumpfile and an Application savefile will be automaticly created. Using a supported GPS device and the gpsd, you can track the location of the discovered networks.
