    Stephen Stair released a wardriving app for the DS. It can catalog up to 512 access points (I tried it, and it works fine!) [​IMG]

    http://akkit.org/dswifi/index.html

    Here's the file:

    wifi_lib_test.nds

    It has to be patched with ndsloader to work on most flashcarts. For those lazy ones out there, I uploaded an already patched nds on rapidshare (you're welcome). Don't forget to rename it to .nds for the SuperCard!
    wifi_lib_test.ds.gba

    Great work, Unca Stair [​IMG]

    Simply put, a wireless access point is the apparatus your DS connects to when you want to play Mario Kart DS online. [​IMG]

    This application makes the DS capable of detecting these wireless access points. So basically, with this app you can walk around the city with your DS, and find hotspots. That's wardriving [​IMG]

    Hmm, I uploaded it to my NeoFlash with no problem, it boots ok. It initiates the ARM7 and I get the following menu options but no way to select them. My control pad doesnt work, nor does the touch screen.

    > Play War Driving
    > Keyboard Test

    Can't select either.... am I doing something wrong?

    Thanks Stick, I'll give it a go and let you know how it flys.

    Update: Good stuff Stick, the patched worked fine. I'm gonna try it around town today maybe. I'm gonna have to grab me that patcher [​IMG]

    Offtopic: Is their really any other homebrew software out there yet? word processors, image viewers, etc?

    You're welcome [​IMG]
    The patch's no big deal, I just used the dsbuild binary from Devkitpro. But you can also use dslazy to convert nds files to .ds.gba [​IMG]

    can it crack wep?
    tell it can id say thats a pretty pointless wardriving tool
    maybe someone could implement a a packet capture feature to then take a pcap dump or netstumbler text file of the packets and either analyze them or crack them on a pc or whatever other use it might have
