Broadcast Multiple SSIDs From One Computer

NetworkList

 

MDK3 is a Linux program that will allow you to do all sorts of things with wireless beacon frames.  One of the things you can do is broadcast a list of fake access points from a single wireless card. Good for illustrating that users shouldn't just connect to any open AP that they come across.

Find the Right Channel for Your Wireless AP

If you're setting up a new wireless router (or just curious about the wireless networks in the area) check out inSSIDer. InSSIDer makes it easy to see what channels the other access points use, as well as what encryption is in use (if any), and the brand of the AP. This is very helpful for choosing a less used channel for your router, and if you're a tech it can help with enumerating a client's setup.

InSSIDer is available for Linux and Windows. It has deb and rpm packages making the Linux install easy.
