I have a Linksys wrt54GX2 (srx200 wireless router) (I have the cd)
can you use this to DETECT outside wireless connections?
This router has just been sitting here in my hardware pile- -doing nothing. Been wondering if I can put it to good use improving my connection to the local (free wireless inet) network connection that is shared in my apartment building.
I've always used a router/switch to just DISTRIBUTE or share out, a wireless or internet connection. As most homes do.
I was just wondering if you can also use this router TO DETECT a general (unsecured) internet connection.
I would think so, but I've only begun to search for info (on the web) about this. So far I haven't found much / anything that was terribly relevant. Mostly stuff about wardialing with mobile hardware. That's not my intent. I just was wondering if I can use it to better receive a weak signal, right here. (since I don't have access to the router and cannot change it's output or physical location).
Also, if someone has a favorite or known software or utility programs that function well with this router in alternative uses of network activity/security/detection/analysis. I appreciate any suggestions
just go ahead and comment upon the possibilities.
With Many thanks
