    OmniPeek provides it's own drivers for several wireless chipsets allowing promiscuous operation under Windows, as well as very advanced tools for traffic analysis and monitoring.

    You should look into it, they do have a free trial IIRC.

    Real security doesn't come with an installer.

    As I understand it, the question is: "can you get an RF monitoring driver for your particular WiFi card/adapter".

    Sure, you need a card that is "promiscuous" but basically they potentially all are, provided you have a special driver that supports it.................the regular drivers don't.

    Technically that does make it a software issue, but, as many cards don't have the appropriate software the distinction is somewhat academic, as the make and model of card just won't do the job.

    Personally I blame Intel................ it's just like their scabby 915 chipset............if you have the 915M it has the software to support a native 16:9 aspect ratio whilst the software for their desktop boards won't
    You nihil, dear sir, win most politically correct response in a week. You should congratulates yourself on that post...you could post that on any website on the nets and they would accept it as appropriate "copy". +10 internets, I'm not being an ass, either...

    KisMAC is a passive network scanner. Instead of sending requests for active probe, charging the wireless card to tune to a channel, listen for a short time and then tune the next channel, listen a little, and so on. Thus, not only can detect networks without announcing their presence, but are networks that do not meet the requirements of the probe, ie, "closed" networks (AP marked disabled people). But that's not all. Passive Monitors have access to all the radio frames can be heard while listening on a particular channel. This means you can not only detect access points, but also the wireless clients of these access points.

    KisMAC is an open-source and free WiFi stumbler/scanner application for Mac OS X. It has an advantage over MacStumbler/iStumbler/NetStumbler in that it uses monitor mode and passive scanning.
    The original question is what equivalents are available for the chipsets on Intel motherboards running Windows as an OS.

    And I wouldn't use it in Germany, where it ranks as a felony offence alongside possession of child pornography

    The scanner requires the responsibility of the CACE Technologies AirPcap adapter that allows the capture of raw 802.11 frames on average AirPcap drivers. The scanner to recognize the wireless access points (see above) and clients (list below) decoding 802.11b / g packets in transit in the air in a totally passive. "Zapping" feature changes the frequency of the AC, every second, you will discover wireless networks on different channels.

    The CACE/AirPcap solution has already been mentioned. AFAIK it does not work with Intel chipsets, which was part of the original question.

    The Intel site link I gave does refer to a solution for at least one Intel product
