I heard it is formally Whax and Auditor , which I heard were used for cracking wep codes and stuff(pretty useful stuff right there lol), one question is it easy enough for a newbie to use?

sure its great for a nubie. it has alot of tools already installed, so you can not have to fool with installing them yourself, and spend your time learning how they work..

BackTrack has very little to do with cracking WEP. After all, it's packed full of tools for /other/ things.

Backtrack can do alot more then just crack wep my friend, download it and try it for yourself. Wep key is one of the features though and its quite easy to use too, you just use a combination of kismet, airodump, Void11, aireplay, and aircrack to find, capture and crack packets. Check out an article written at www.tomsnetworking.com (shouldn't be too hard to find)

Make sure you don't break any laws now. Goodluck

The school probably has more protection then just a wep key, something like logons and such. Plus your just gonna get into trouble doing that kinda stuff. Be like me and make nice with the techs, then you get permission to do whatever you want. :D

Peace, Snippet

Get a USB thumbdrive, download portable firefox and get a FFox extension called foxyproxy, I cant remeber the site, but there are a few apps that run just on USB drive that should get past your proxy.

WPA is such a pain :-|...except for the fact people pick stupid passphrases, now hypothetically my mother for some reason refuses to pay for internet, what does she do? steals it from the neighbours, she actually tried to pay me to crack the WEP on the other two APs so when the unsecured one was low on signal she could use the bright secured APs...had I accepted I'd have used backtrack since it's pretty much all you need on one disc without having to install a distro on a computer not normally used for such things.
