  1. Huh... how many years have we been waiting for this moment?
  2. If he's cracking your WPA so quickly and your router has WPS support, he might be using Reaver. Disable your WPS settings, and make sure WPS is actually disabled at the hardware level.... It might require a firmware upgrade.
  3. resistorX:

    Yes, one really long Monday.

  4. Can't really say I know anything. However I have noticed that alot of bluetooth dongles are blank slates until the firmware is uploaded to it. Might be a place to find clues. The fun things we learn while using linux and a cheap rocketfish dongle.
  5. Yes what you say is true. However, some people with potential have to start somewhere and google is pretty useless until you know the right keywords to search.
  6. Well, if you've used different formatters it is starting to sound like a hardware issue. Have you tried using a different reader? Or cleaning the connections on the card? Old school cartridge trick: rub the shiny bits with a pencil eraser.
  7. Probably.
  8. It's still in early development, but the ubertooth shows some interesting possibilities.
  9. Just a thought. Instead of going to the local plumbing shop, How about a local HVAC shop? 3" flue pipe for a gas water heater would be close and alot cheaper then copper.
  10. I bought a cheap Rosewill RNX-GX4 router from newegg the other day when it was damn cheap. I was trying to make it into a universal wireless repeater. Had it working as a repeater, then tried to make it Universal. Bricked it. Lights come on, but nothing from the ethernet or wifi. Wiresharked it, and my laptop tried to get an address, I can see the lights on the router wink when it asks, but no reply ever comes back Opened it up, and found what looks like it could be a JTAG port. Even found some info that it is, and the pinouts to try. Took a multimeter and tested the pin voltages and they were right (2 were 3.3, 2 were gnd). I have an AVR_Dragon sitting around here. It says it can do JTAG. I'm on linux and have avrdude installed. When I try to set it in jtag mode I need a part number. The part numbers I have to choose from are all AVR chips. Does anyone know how I could create a new 'part number' of this router so I can copy the firmware and everything else off a good router (I bought 2) and copy it over to the bricked one? I've googled, but can't find anything about using the Avr_Dragon to jtag non AVR stuff.
  11. Appreciate it. I have some AVR chips already. I just was wondering if I could use the Dragon to reflash the router since I already have one. I have no experience in JTAGing anything. I had almost forgotten about this project. I need to figure out where those routers got off too.. I know there in this room -somewhere-.
  12. Do you want to buy a pre-built solution? http://www.relaypros.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=CTGY&Store_Code=NCD&Category_Code=Ethernet Just google around for things like 256 relay board, and hordes more will show up. Or do you want to build this yourself? That'd be cool, but man.. getting it to interface with your phone might eat some dev time. --but it'd be cool.
  13. That's just malicious evil on the part of the sanitation and the police departments. I wonder if they (the police) have opened up an avenue to be sued for violating individual rights of due process?
  14. Beholdith the power and be amazed. or disappointed, My money is on disappointed.

  15. get a little ziploc baggie the license will fit in, and glue some black paper /tin foil to the ziploc over where the bar code is.. This way, you haven't altered the license. you're just making it impossible to scan w/o removing it.. that'll give you time to say HEY, WTF are you doing? when they try to scan it. Mine has a funky bar code... it's not stripped like a regular UPC.. thick vertical black bars at the ends, a few consistent thin vertical black bars in the middle of the field, and what looks like 'binary snow' everywhere else. edit: turns out it's the PDF 417 code? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PDF417
  16. First thought: If you want to solder wires to it... you .could. tap the lines going to the LCD, RE it's instruction set.. parse that with a microcontroller, then have the microcontroller emulate a keyboard event. On Second thoughts: that little 2x5 10 pin double header there... could that be a Jtag? and the traces going to the 2x16 socket kinda make me lean that way too. the 2x16 might be a gold mind for a diagnostic/test port. Wonder if that 2x16 somehow makes its way out the parallel port on the back? Wonder if there's a way to send serial data through that port on the back? You're just going to have to start studying that thing hard core. If you don't have a logic analyzer, get yourself one. You'll love it for mysteries like you have here. BTW: what is this thing for? stock trading or something?
  17. Yes. It is not really gemini's fault(so they wont help). They just don't advertise that it is a HID device not midi, and they bundle it with virtual dj which runs HID. Tech support says you cannot run it with any midi programs because it uses HID, which is a different language. They are right about this, and they do not speak English very well, so the goal is to prove them wrong by translating the HID into MIDI. It can be done on a mac, but I need to do it on a pc. so, does it act like an HID keyboard, or mouse? have you tried opening up a text editor and seeing if it dumps out anything when you push stuff?
  18. Have you tried the tech help here? http://www.geminidj.com/ctrl-one
  19. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Room_641A it's some scary stuff... another one you might like is http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/military/spy-factory.html
  20. I'd like to add... physically type in the examples you find. Don't cut and paste. By typing them in, you'll get an instinct for the syntax.
  21. If you just want to screw with their heads... there's always airpwn.
  22. That alfa card, I have one. It's great. Injected out of the box on Ubuntu 10.4. You'll be happy with it. Kismet, airodump-ng; both work well with it.
  23. Sometimes it helps to disable the wireless network manager before changing macs.
  24. In ubuntu, did you do it as root? (sudo ifconfig wlanX down) Also try using macchanger ("sudo apt-get install macchanger" to get it,) ("sudo macchanger -r wlanX") do a iwconfig to figure out what your wifi device name is.
  25. You use nulls when you need them. Like you said, quotes auto add them for you. If you're doing something and want to trunc a string or merge them, you need to pay attention to nulls then. There are other places too, like pointers you want to watch out for null pointers. Screwy stuff can happen. I'm not too up on Makefile's. Not much I do requires them. Occasionally when I'm cross compiling for a microcontroller I do use them to save on typing the same commands over and over again. Also I'll add a command to the Makefile to make programming my target board easier. Hopefully someone else can step in and answer better. But basically if you have a program that links a bunch of stuff together, use a Makefile to save yourself typing and the occasional typo. Here's a tutorial found on google with the search terms "makefile tutorial" It's about as crash as you can get. http://www.opussoftware.com/tutorial/TutMakefile.htm
