trace wi-fi

There is a particular Wifi network which is continuously on, name is **, which is used by hacker(s) to hack into laptops and desktops. This particular network is suspect because unlike other networks like Zyxel , Draknet which are on for some time only, this network is always on. How do you trace the owner of a Wifi network?

Re: trace wi-fi

Hi Leonidus,

I am in no way a wifi network expert but my guess is that you would trace the owner of a wifi network by measuring the "connectivity" of the wifi network at different geographic places, thus "triangulating" the localization of the wifi signal emitor ...

Re: trace wi-fi

Back to the hacking ... I believe this would be safer for hackers to penetrate a victim's computer, corrupt their wifi network by allowing part of it to be used for hacking activities, and pilot their hacking activities directly through the victim's computer (by logging to that client computer through a distributed network such as Tor). In this way their activities could hardly be localized (at worst, only the victim computer's would be localized).
