Summary of Important Measurements:

 

Latitude/Longitude -- This is the approximate location of the Wireless Network device based on where the strongest signal was detected.

 

SSID -- Service Set Identifier; Network name assigned by user.  This name is broadcast by the Wireless Router.

 

Flags --The Flags value indicates what level of data encryption is enabled, and other specific characteristics and capabilities of the WLAN.  A Flag value of '1' indicates a Wireless Network access point (AP) that provides no data encryption.  A value of "11" indicates an AP using WEP or some other form of encryption, such WPA or AES.

 

Last Channel -- Radio Frequency channel in use.  Devices using the same channel in close physical proximity will interfere with each other.

 

 

 

>> Wireless Router Proximity ...

 

Wireless Routers detected from a single location -- The map below shows wireless network APs detected from a single location -- within the subject's WLAN physical property boundaries.  In this example, network performance problems inside the subject's home were caused by APs in neighboring homes.  In addition, there was a high potential for accidental connection to the wrong network. 

 

Wrong network was "automatically" selected -- At some locations within the subject's home, the neighbor's wireless router provided higher RF signal strength than the subject's own router -- as a result, the neighbor's router was automatically chosen by the computer's operating system.  LeveL10.us was able to isolate and correct the problem -- improving the system performance and privacy of all neighbors.

Over 50% of wireless networks have no protection --  Of the fourteen wireless routers detected in this specific on-site survey, eight had no data encryption and would allow anyone to make a connection. 

 

 

NOTE: There is never an attempt by LeveL10.us personnel to connect into or access any networks, or resources attached to any network, which is found during this discovery process, or to use such collected information in any way that may compromise security or privacy of the network owner.
