Check it out and eager to know what any of you think. It is working very well right now in my environment and am eager to continue the project.

The activity is called sniffing. If you're doing it with authorization in an enterprise setting to solve certain issues, then fine and well. If not, at the worst it could get you fired; or jailed. Or, it would cause problems on your network if it blocks instead of snifs.

Hidden RPi modules in a corporate setting are evil.

Your motives may be good, and you may have authorization (I'm reserving judgement), but be careful.

Words to the wise.

Thanks, but I was advised by the company to help with some wifi issues. Appreciate the concern though.
