I hope I have this in the correct forum.
I had an issue brought to me and I have a couple of questions. Is there a tool/software that can be used to scan a network and show these ad hoc network connections?
Or what is a good tool to use for someone not up-to-date with networking issues? I was told there were a “bunch of printers broadcasting on ad hoc networks” in the environment, I want to look at the wireless network to verify this for myself. I did a google search on printers broadcasting and something I read about an HP printer pointed me in the direction of checking to see if the wifi direct setting is turned on.
I have not been to the site yet. I will be checking in the next day or two when I have access to the printers the status of this setting. At that time I’d like to do a before and after look of what’s being shown on the network, and if changing the setting is the solution. The next question is, if they’re still broadcasting next step/s to resolve the situation?
