ok i had this longer and more detailed forum but i didn't submit it fast enough so it logged me out and deleted my forum.
so i'm trying to bypass mac filtering. after cracking my wep i thought i'd try to do it with mac filtering.
i'm running backtrack 3 ra0 Ralink b/g rt2500
i know i need to change my mac address to one of the accepted mac address.
after doing all of the following:
bt ~ # airmon-ng stop ra0
Interface Chipset Driver
ra0 Ralink b/g rt2500 (monitor mode disabled)
bt ~ # ifconfig ra0 down
bt ~ # macchanger --mac 00:11:22:33:44:55 ra0
Current MAC: 00:0f:66:e6:bf:aa (Cisco-linksys)
Faked MAC: 00:11:22:33:44:55 (Cimsys Inc)
bt ~ # airmon-ng start ra0
Interface Chipset Driver
ra0 Ralink b/g rt2500 (monitor mode enabled)
knowing that 00:11:22:33:44:55 isn't an accepted mac address it wont work. so if i'm correct you need the one that is under STATION. so first i find the networks around me:
bt ~ # airodump-ng ra0

00:13:92:08:6B:FD -1 0 5 0 6 -1 WPA <length: 0>
before anyone has any red flags... i know my pwr is at 0. it has something to do with my driver not showing pwr levels. i haven't the slightest clue why it does this. all i know is i was able to crack the wep so it has to work. right?
now that i have the bssid i can figure out an accepted mac address. by putting in:
bt ~ # airodump-ng -c 6 -w dooms --bssid 00:16:B6:0F:F4:CD ra0

here is the problem no matter how long i sit and wait the station never shows anything. it stays blank.
i've read it was pretty easy to bypass mac filtering so please be easy on me. :)
if anyone has any ideas on what the next step is i'd very much appreciate any help on this problem.
thanks in advance
lol ok i guess i answered my own question again. after reading something on another forum i turned on my girlfriends computer and sure enough i got a station mac address.
so now my next question is how do i use her accepted mac address on my computers denied mac address?
once again helped myself. after finding the accepted mac address i was able to spoof my mac address using:
ifconfig ra0 down hw ether 00:21:00:14:A8:48
i guess you can find out anything on your own. but it probably wouldn't have taken me 6 hours.
thanks for the forums at least guys.
