AirSnare is an intrusion detection system to help you monitor your wireless network.
AirSnare will alert you to unfriendly MAC addresses on your network as well as to DHCP requests.
If AirSnare detects an unfriendly MAC address, you have the option of tracking its access to IP addresses and ports or of launching Ethereal.

Initial Download and Setup

1) You will need a 802.11b (wireless) network card. If Ethereal works with your network card, AirSnare should do the same. (AirSnare will work on a wired network card).

2) The computer that is going to be running AirSnare must be associated with the Access Point. What this means is the computer must have it's wireless client SSID set to the same SSID as the Access Point. (Setting the SSID on the AirSnare computer to: ANY has also worked in LAB testing.)

3) You must have the WinPcap Library installed. If you are running Ethereal (the free sniffer software) then you already have this, if not you can download it from

4) Download AirSnare and install it.

5) Start AirSnare. As long as you have the above installed you shouldn't get any errors.

6) Go to the Author's site at , there you will find all that u need!

7) There is far more to this prog than I can list here, so if ur interested visit the above site.

Download AirSnare
