    I am starting a graduate class,and I need to do a 15 page paper on anything about networking. I have chosen to do a paper on the ease of/ lack of security of breaking into wireless networks and want to write an example functioning packet sniffer.

    I have googled for the basics (obviously) but prefer some helpful starter conversation and how to start on a Windows Xp system :) prefer, some c++ code, maybe...unless there is something easier.

    thanks

    After attempting to understand what you wrote, I have concluded that you are going to code your own Microsoft targetting sniffer, and then write a 15 page report on 802.11 vulnerabilities.

    You might want to look into pinging targets in order to collect enough packets to crack teh WEP'ed.

    Please give us the code when you've made it.

    My friends recently wrote a packet sniffer/port scanner in PHP for their senior project...said it was quite easy. For starters, I'd Google some open source solutions and take a look at the code to get a handle on the algorithms.

    Sorry, I wrote my post in such fragmentation, but you are dead on.

    Could you ask where he looked, and found some results?
