This project requires that certain data be extracted from a WiFi compatible card 'NIC' (pci, pcmcia, usb) regarding the SSID's currently in range of a, say, laptop computer running win2k or XP, the signal strengths reported by the NIC, the mac addresses, channels and if WEP is present or not. This data, together with other TCP/IP data from the laptop (ip address etc) will be posted to a server for further processing. A response packet from the server may prompt the user with a popup screen to enter some data to be posted back to the server again. No wifi sniffing of data is involved, only signal strengths etc.
This project will include a setup package suitable for novice computer users, user options are very limited, since most settings come from the OS, but an uninstall and start/stop service option should be provided. The popup screen text must be remotely manageable.
A method to notify the user that an version update is available would be an add-on project, as are GUI enhancements.
