Hey dude if you still can't get it to work on ubuntu try downloading the new version of Backtrack 4 http://www.remote-ex...t4-prefinal-iso
It has everything you need for cracking WEP pre-installed.
There is also a way to crack WPA now but it has to be TKIP. I don't remember the other type of WPA encrytion off the top of my head but there is some articles about it.
I could never get kismet to work for me in backtrack but I did some tweaking to my configurations.
I have an atheros and it won't set my card to monitor mode so I did some research and got it to work.
ifconfig ath0 up
wlanconfig ath1 create wlanmode monitor wlandev wifi0
ifconfig ath0 down
wlanconfig ath0 destroy
ifconfig ath1 up
boom i now have my atheros card in monitor mode so i can use airodump.
if you want to crack wep though you should setup your airodump to capture only IV's from a certain channel.
And if anybody can correct me on this maybe i am wrong but I have cracked a WEP encryption before with no clients associated except for me. I did the fake auth... then ran ARP inject. while both were running i stopped fake auth and used Deauth... after about 5 seconds of deauthing... my arp inject shot up to sending/receiving 300+ IV packets a sec. and that router i cracked in 3 mins or less.
Turned out the password was the companies phone number. I have actually seen that alone. I tried calling it for fun and it turned out to be their fax number.
If i am wrong and that is not suppose to happen, correct me because i could had swore you had to be fully authed with a router to actually get it to catch the right IV packet to inject. I didn't think a fake auth would do it but I was just trying it for shits and gigs.
anyways i hope this helps you if not anybody else who is having trouble.
I was recently reading an article here: http://www.hellbound...-fbi-style.html
explaining how to get the WEP key for a network in 3-4 mins.
I am very interested in this, and wish to try it out on my own network. Sadly I am having some trouble using the 2 main programs mentioned in this article "Kismet" and "Aircrack".
I am using Ubuntu at the moment, and am having some slight trouble downloading these two. (Sorry, I only started with Linux a week or two ago )
I can probably get by without Kismet, as I know the SSID and Channel of my current network, but for me to try this out, I really need Aircrack.
Could someone please help me in downloading these programs and give any ideas which might help as I am slightly confused on some things mentioned in this article.
Thanks very much.
