Updated firmware and getting results

A project log for Shame on you!

Finding open WIFI connections, default setups, and messing with people around you wanting an open wifi connection.

I was able to follow ElectroDragon's firmware update guide to update my ESP8266 modules from 00150900 to 0018000902. Once this was done I was able to run a simple AT+CWLAP and listed all AP's around me with security information, SSID name, RSSi, MAC, and channel. Here are the results from coolterm. The first value after ( is the security used. I also did a lookup based on the MAC to see what type of manufacturer was supposedly being used (names and mac scrubbed). I will update DS2 with no security and see if I can open connect (this is my AP running DD-WRT with VLANS). If that works I will see what I can do with squid proxy to redirect to a login screen to fake a open wifi with login screen (like hotels and Adam's question below).

0=None; 1=WEP; 2=WPA_PSK; 3=WPA2_PSK; 4=WPA_WPA2_PSK;
