Good morning to all who may read this,
I have been researching hpsetup as a wireless SSID and have found very little in the way of a solid answer to what it is. Mostly i've seen that it is either a connection from a wireless hp computer or printer or a foreign wireless connection (one that does not belong to the user) that can be used to access the internet. I work in an office building so this means it could be a number of things, but i've spent the last few days locking down what it could be. Using net stumbler I figured out what each wireless connection belongs to, but there is one on channel 10 (a channel that to my knowledge is not being used anywhere in the office) that has hpsetup in it. Normally this wouldn't be that big of a deal but the strangest thing occurs with this hpsetup. It show connectivity at about -80 to -85 for about 5 to 10 seconds and the there is no connectivity to that mac address again. Then about 5 min later another hpsetup shows up on channel 10 with a completely different mac address has connectivity at about -80 to -85 for another 5 to 10 seconds and then dissapears. I let net stumbler run overnight and there are almost 400 entries of hpsetup each with a different mac address. Any ideas about what could be causing it would be fantastic. I did think it may be net stumbler seeing my computers wireless connection, but why would it show a different mac address each time then? Anyways thanks for any info you may have or for taking the time to read this.
I found this thread:
Computer Forums Hpsetup thread
but it didn't really solve my problem and is an old dead thread so I thought I would post something new. If this is posted in the inncorrect place I apologize. Have a great day.
