I can see any wireless modem around(networks) in internet access icon , How routers say to my computer "hey I am here ?" is it port forwarding ? upnp ? IGMP ? which protocol they send and in what port? How can I see those packet in wireshark? If I can see the packet dose it mean I can find their IP?
the protocols I mention was the first thing come in my mind because I think somehow they can be used for this action
