Comment on CNN – Security experts warn of dangers of rogue Wi-Fi hotspots by Hannan Ahmad Wed, 01 Jul 2015 13:02:25 +0000 Before connecting to any public wireless access point, better make sure that the computers anti-virus program is updated with the latest virus definitions. Also check and make sure that your computers firewall is turned on. These things should protect you against any rogue access point that could compromise your data.

Comment on Google Project Fi – New Era for Mobile Technology? by stephen cunningham Fri, 22 May 2015 13:23:50 +0000 Thank you for this information. I was not clear when you indicated that Verizon and AT&T will resist this. Why? And how long do you think it will take for this to become the industry standard? thanks for your insights

Comment on iOS8 MAC Address Randomization Update by Lina Arseneault Tue, 19 May 2015 22:03:04 +0000 Hi there,

The random mac addresses are only generated under certain condition like no device and Wi-Fi activity etc. Please check the details in the blog. This is available only on IPhone 5s onwards.
1) There is no change in behavior WRT random macs in IOS8. We have tested IOS8.3 and the behavior remains the same as reported in blog
2) The phone uses the same random mac address while probing in 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz. However the random mac addresses changes periodically.

The best way to see the packets would be to place the phone close to sniffer and sniff in 2.4 GHz only on any channel (1 to 11). Please apply this display/capture filter on wireshark that will display only the packets matching the random mac criteria

((wlan.fc.type_subtype == 0x0004) && (wlan.ta [0:1] & 0x02) && (wlan.bssid == ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff))

Comment on Google Project Fi – New Era for Mobile Technology? by Bhupinder Misra Tue, 19 May 2015 18:26:41 +0000 Hi Sri,
Nice write up.
Just to add to this one of the other disruptor/feature I like about Google Project Fi is the low cost of usage while being abroad.
Perks include

1) Free unlimited SMS
2) Free Wi-Fi calls to US, low cost calls elsewhere.
3) Low cost data ($10 for 1 GB @256 kbps, good for email/chat etc)

Comment on iOS8 MAC Address Randomization Update by Mohanapriya Golla Fri, 20 Mar 2015 12:56:16 +0000 Hello All,

When i was trying to test with 8.2 release of 5 and 5s phones, i am not capturing the random mac addresses.

My questions here is to get some info regrading

1. Is there any updates on Random mac address behavior in 8.2 ?
2. Random mac address probes are same / different in 2.4 and 5Ghz ?

Could anyone confirm the above questions ?

Comment on AirTight at Wireless LAN Professionals Conference WLPC in Dallas by Bianca Groom Fri, 20 Mar 2015 07:53:33 +0000 Loved the 802.11ac capacity planning webinar. The idea to be with top WLAN minds is itself fascinating. I hope to catch the next one.

Comment on ISP Network on the Home Side and the Role Wi-Fi May Play by sriram Sun, 08 Mar 2015 21:51:39 +0000 Very nice article Hemant. I agree with you that the industry needs a co-ordinated effort to define the requirements of home Wi-Fi.

Scalability of Wi-Fi management is the other requirement that might become very critical for service providers if they have to operate profitably.

Comment on iOS8 MAC Address Randomization Update by Chandra Fri, 13 Feb 2015 18:54:13 +0000 I used to turn off Location Services and Cellular data to save battery and stay within limits of data usage. After a while data caps went up and realized that it’s wifi probes that drain battery more than location services and cellular data. Still keep location services off for most of the apps for privacy. Wifi only at trusted places to watch high speed videos or so.
