Locating a hidden access point in our facilities
Posted on 2015-01-14
We have a new wireless network in our facilities and the access points are detecting a rogue access point in the building. Apparently someone installed a wireless access point in the past with a hidden ssid and no one knew it was there. Other then a couple of Android apps I've found, is there any way to locate a hidden broadcasting access point that is most likely not connected to the current network , but yet the radio is working and possibly it's trying to serve dhcp..... We can isolate it to one part of our facilities because of the current access points it's conflicting with show us the area it's in. But there are a lot of places one could be hidden in this building. Is there something that by signal strength or something of that nature that would help us locate this device?
