Chapter 10: Still at War


3. Select the directory where you want to install the program.

Use the default unless you have a compelling reason not to do so.

4. Click Yes to see the Readme file. If you’d prefer not to view the file, click No.

5. Click OK when you see the reminder message to check the handheld device.

6. Connect your handheld to the host computer.

Activate your synching software if it doesn’t start automatically. The software should upload the Pocket PC files to the handheld.

7. If the files are in the *.CAB format, the Pocket PC where you uploaded the files will install the software.

There is no setup routine; you’re set to go.

That should do it for you. However, you may need to review your documentation for full installation instructions.

Obviously, you need a handheld that supports a wireless adapter, whether it is a PC Card or a Compact Flash card. Installing the drivers for the wireless adapter usually requires the use of the synchronization program as well. You probably don’t want to buy multiple wireless cards (even though we have), so you might have an ORiNOCO card you already use with Kismet and NetStumbler. Regrettably using an ORiNOCO card is one of the difficult installations. You have to download the driver for the card (use version 7.x or greater) and unpack the files manually. Then you have to manually port the files to the handheld and install the *.CAB file. Your device will warn you about unsafe drivers; just click OK. You did back up your Pocket PC, right?

After you install the program and the drivers, you’re set to go. Just locate the ministumbler.exe file under the Start or Start Programs menu and tap it.

Configuring MiniStumbler

After MiniStumbler executes, you should see the phrase No AP at the bottom of the window. This is good. Seeing No wireless is bad. (If you see the latter, make sure you have a working wireless card.) When MiniStumbler finds the first access point, you will see 1 AP. If your GPS is working, you will also see the message GPS on.

After you start MiniStumbler, two words and three icons appear on the menu bar. The two words are

ߜ File: This menu holds the file functions such as Open and Save. Also, the Enable Scan item is on this menu. Use it to enable or disable network scanning.

ߜ View: This menu holds those options that affect how the interface looks; for example, toolbars, icons, and options. We cover each of these in detail later in this chapter.

The three icons are

ߜ Green arrow: Enables or disables scanning.

ߜ Gears: Automatically reconfigures the wireless card for scanning. It stops the Wireless Zero Configuration service and makes sure the card is set to a blank or “ANY” SSID.

ߜ Hand with Menu: Opens the Options screen.

The Hand with Menu icon gives you access to the following tabs: ߜ General: Find options about how the scan is performed. Make sure you check the Reconfigure card automatically and Get AP Names options.
