Warwalking Survey.

I found some better scanning software, so I walked around the office complex here, hunting for WiFi access points. Here are the rather disturbing results:

Offices in this complex: ~30
Total Access Points: 19
AP's not using encryption: 8
AP's on the default channel 6: 9
AP's on a non-standard channel*: 5
AP's using a default SSID: 5
AP's using the SSID "linksys": 3
Most AP's detectable from one location: 12
Fewest AP's detectable from one location: 2

*Non-standard channel = Anything other than 1, 6 and 11, the only 3 channels that do not suffer frequency overlap.

Confuse American laptops, use channel 12. (Available in the Uk)
I believe channel 13 exists too.
