I've never managed to get enough traffic. I'm surrounded by WEPed access
points but kismet finds 1 encypted packet an hour, if that. They just
seem to be sending out beacons :(

People must be using them, I presume - just not close enough to me to
pick up traffic.

(The aim of this was to see how broken WEP was, kimset does all that for
you anyway. I wasn't dreaming of actually using a WEPed access point, as
that's pretty evil and illegal..)
