let's break this down:


Is the MAC Address of the Network


Is the signal strenght or power. The higher the number, the better signal we have


Are the frames send from the Network to broadcast it's existance. Every Network, even if it's hidden, sends this frames to tell the wireless devices that it exists and it's MAC Address, it's channel, it's encryption and it's name


This are the data packages or data frames. They are the packages which get interesting when it comes to wireless hacking


Are the packages which were collected the last 10 seconds


Is the wireless Channel of the Network


Is the Maxinum Speed supported


Is the Encryption used


Cipher used in the Network


is the authentications used in this network. For example PSK (Pre shared key) or MGT


Is the Network Name

Don't worry just jet about ENC, CIPHER and Auth just yet, it will be a part in the gaining Access part of this Wiki
