How to use WRT54G for Wardriving?


I have a WRT54G which I use as a Router to the Internet.

Is there a way I can use my WRT54G to scan for close by WiFi Access points? I know software like NetStumbler can only be used with a WiFi Card.

Any ideas?

Thanks, Derek

Or better yet, go visit the Church Of WiFi, where there are how-to's posted on setting up the Kismet_drone on a WRT54G, as well as running Kismet_server under Cygwin on a Windows box.
