Finally, the Ralink shows neither of these indicators, so it is using an ieee80211 driver - see the generic instructions for setting.
After about half a dozen attempts (and trying BackTrack on both my Mac and PC, as a live CD and a virtual machine I still haven't captured enough data for aircrack to decrypt the key.
The only thing that does give the information to start an attack is the handshake between client and.
If you do not own a particular access point, please remember to get permission from the owner prior to playing with.After consulting with my friendly neighborhood security expert, I purchased an Alfa awus050NH USB adapter, pictured here, and it set me back about 50 on Amazon.Now it's time to pick your network.When using Wireshark, the filter eapol will quickly display only the eapol packets.Now at this point, aircrack-ng will start attempting to crack the pre-shared key.Problems Along the Way With this article I set out to prove that cracking WEP is a relatively "easy" process for someone determined and willing to get the hardware and software going.Skip to content, july 2, 2009, lifehacker wrote a guide for cracking a WiFi networks WEP password using BackTrack.Open a new Konsole window in the foreground, and enter this command: aireplay-ng -1 0 -a (bssid) -h 00:11:22:33:44:55 -e (essid) (interface) Here the essid is the access point's ssid name, which in my case is yoyo.The purpose of this step is to run airodump-ng to capture the 4-way authentication handshake for the AP we are interested.Use the injection test to confirm your card can inject.
Like I said, hit CtrlC to stop this listing.

It is recommended that you experiment with your home wireless access point to get familiar with these ideas and techniques.Note that mac80211 is supported only since aircrack-ng.0-rc1, and it won't work with.9.1.Because both interfaces share a common radio, they must always be tuned to the same channel - changing the channel on one interface also changes channel on the other one.Do man iwconfig to see the options for modulation.This can be done by sniffing a wireless network, capturing encrypted packets and running appropriate encryption cracking program in attempt to decrypt captured data.
