I've been tasked with documenting all of our wireless networks. To give you some background we have a HQ building with wireless access. This is extremely well documented. However we have about 50 other sites that are used as bases for some of our staff. We know that they have network access but have no idea what wireless networks are there. We want to document them so we know which buildings have wireless and any potential rogue access points.
My plan was to travel to each building over time and wonder around with a programme like netstumbler on my laptop to see what is out there.
My question is, whilst I'm there what else can I look at with regards to wireless networks or are there any other different tools I can use? My understanding of netstumbler is it will just show me what access points are within range but is there anything else I should be looking for?
