    When I use net stumbler it states vendor as 'Fake" for my WRT54GC wireless router. Is this an error or a setting on my router??

    What MAC address does it show? I think NetStumbler classifies manufacturered based on the first 3 chunks of the MAC. Have you noticed that NetStumbler has not had a new version in a LONG time?

    I have a planet AP at wrk and netstumbler indicates it as planet vendor. Netstumbler verion 0.4.0.

    Don't worry, it's not a problem. Netstumbler hasn't been updated since April 2004. So, most new hardware will come up with (Fake) as the vender since they're not recognized. My Linksys WRT54G v2 was recognized as Linksys, but my WRT54GS v3 is listed as (Fake).
