Well Myke,

Wardriving isnt really all about breaking into the secured wireless networks, its mostly about finding the unsecured ones and mapping out the GPS coordinates and documenting them so others can benefit from the "free" connection  ;D

There are a few wireless brute-force utilities out there, personally ive not used any myself just yet. I tend not to need to as for every one locked down AP there are 3 or 4 in its vicinity that arent, hehe.

Ive been reccomended the use of WarLinux for intense wireless hacking. Its a compact Linux distro designed purely for WarDriving and provides a platform for running many exploits and such since it is a Linux kernel.

Classic Windows Based Wardriving Util

Macstumbler = Nice util for Mac users. It talks too!

Yup... Warlinux is pretty nice... Also have a version of Knoppix which is really nice for Wardriving.
