    Sorry if this has been asked before - I did search first but could not find an answer.

    I don't understand why it is that when I scan with Minidwep to see APs, each shows multiple beacons detected for each AP. But when try a WPS attack, more often than not, it fails to get even one beacon from the AP.

    Is this common? I am fairly new to this. I've been using Xiaopan 0.4.6 and today tried 0.4.6.1.
    Seemed to be the same on this issue.

    Can anyone shed light on this? o_O

    StarTux WPS won't be enable for that particular AP which means you can't attack this AP with reaver, find any other way

    That's confusing too. Sometimes APs show as using WPS, then next time I scan it might show they aren't?

    It's quite inconsistent, however the signal is quite weak also, like -85.

    It mean you are too far from the AP that you are trying to attack

    Does being too far also occasionally cause false reporting of WPS vulnerability on some APs?
