Worked for me (had to leave it overnight), thanks :) Cool to see what this app really does and how far it covers for the 'local' area.

5) When you arrive at the MAC ADDRESS area go here if you are using Windows:
http://www.metageek.net/products/inssider/

or here if you are using MAC:
http://istumbler.net/

6) After you install those programs, open them and you should see your MAC ADDRESS displayed and you need to add it to the skyhook website.
It should look like this (EXAMPLE) 00:00:00:00:00 with various numbers or letters instead of zeros.


Is it necessary to install the software? Can't people just open cmd, and input this:

c:\windows\system32>ipconfig/all
(^make a note of default gateway)
c:\windows\system32>ping insert default gateway address here
(^ie, input something that looks like ping 192.168.0.1)
c:\windows\system32>arp -a
^(don't forget the space after the 'arp')

then the physical address (MAC address) is what they need?

Can you only use this inSSIDer program from a laptop or desktop with wifi? I use a desktop that has a cat5 going to the wireless router and the program isn't giving me any info.


yes it should work on all computers.


Ok, finally got to try it on a laptop and it's working. Must need a wireless card to find the right MAC address. Near worked immediately after submitting the info to Skyhook.

It worked for me. I am glad because it got to work in a few minutes. Can I remove inSSIDer once Near works or do I need to keep it?
