There is some other background on other 802.11 protocol information. But I don't consider a background on 802.11 family of protocols a "tip". That's just information. What I want is gems of practical and applicable ideas/methods that you can only learn from long experience.
In that respect this is disappointing.
If you're serious about Wifi hacking get Wi-Foo. If you want a painless and low cost introduction then Wireless Hacks is appropriate.
The building and extending portions of the book just pick low hanging fruit they document what you would find on the first page of well worded google searches.
Extremely disappointing, fortunately the price is very low. Too low to bother going through the return process.
