Missing Information "Mac Adress or Secure Information"

Post by Forscher187 » Mon Dec 27, 2010 3:58 am

Hello,

i have Made a Update to the latest Version, the Older Version i don´t know what i have used but in the Old Version i have see the mac adress and how the AP´s is Secure.

With the latest Version i have the Problem that i see the mac if i don´t use the native mode but then i don´t see how the AP´s is secure. If i switch to Native mode i see the Secure Mode "WEP, WPA..." but not the Mac Adress.

native mode has different information. it does not have mac address, channel, and displays the network types a little differently.

using netsh mode is the recommended way to run vistumbler. native mode is kind of limited. native wifi is mainly included for backend stuff, testing, and a little bit of xp support.

i use Windows 7 (32), the problem is it works a time after the Update to the lates version it has changed. If i use the netsh mode the is the Network Secure Type missing. If i using the Native mode then it´s show the information of the Network.

i will try later the older version again to see if there stay´s the Information.

Are you using a German Language version of Windows? If so your language pack file might have changed with the update.

can you go to command prompt and run this command "netsh wlan show networks mode=bssid" (without the quotes). Do this an an area you know there is some wifi and post the results. I will see if theres any reason you should be missing some data.

If you are using an english version of windows make sure your searchworks look like this (Settings --> Set netsh searchwords)

the field name that you are missing should have a matching searchword. this needs to match what you see it your netsh output.. For english (en_US), it should be what I have above
