I have a question about Wifi, I couldn't find the answer anywhere.
Is it possible to send a packet over wifi without having joined any kind of network (ad-hoc or not)?
I would like to be able to send packets in the air without joining a network. Another device in monitor mode would be able to recognize which packets it should treat. I know wifi may not be the best way to do this, just wanted to know how it works technically.
Indeed, there must be some kind of packets sent during wireless network discovery? How are the various SSIDs transferred over network without a connection being made? What kind of packets are sent to discover networks over wifi?
If someone could just point me in the direction of some documentation about this, I couldn't find it.
Thanks a lot!
