What its the purpose of having an SSID, one character in length, that contains x'00' ?
Null SSID's are supposed to have a length of zero.
Is this some kind of place holder for future networks ?
I think that is a valid 1-character long SSID. I know that some vendors restrict what characters an SSID contains, but I don't think it is in the standard (please correct me if I'm wrong).
By the way, I lost your business card, but would like to see that acorns-in-a-dish video if you can post the link.
You're right, a one byte SSID is legit, but with a x'00' how could you get to it. I've tried editing my Win-7 Registry, but I can't create it with anything that have tried.
It doesn't show up with InSSIDer either, only OmniPeek.
I think it's either a hacked entry, or a placeholder by a misguided administrator.
I'm glad you reminded me of the acorns - I just put a entry in the CWNA forum called "Acorns with your soup?"
I have read that it has to be an alphanumeric, but 802.11-2012 section 188.8.131.52 includes a mechanism for signaling that the SSID is UTF-8 encoded.
I want to name a network "£-SÅÑÐ"
LOL... I love it.
