Ubuntu: How to make network card passive



Question:

Id prefer not to have my computer send out probe requests. how do I go about turning probe requests off? Will this impede my wifi connect-ability in any way?


Solution:1

The only way to turn probe requests off is to turn off your wireless antenna. If you turn it off somehow in the hardware then you wouldn't be able to associate to any wireless network.

For privacy you could use tools that change your mac address. This is a way to help stay anonymous and private.
