WPA2 getting no where
Okay I've been googling for a day and half and I don't seem to be getting anywhere. Im using backtrack4 installed to HD on Vmware workstation 6.5.1. Im using the WUSB54GR. I'm logged in as root, so I don't have to do sudo right? I can see my network, non broadcasting WPA2-Personal with airdump-ng and kismet. Now i've extracted, wpa_supplicant-0.6.9.tar to my desktop, which i got from wiki. I didn't know where to put it so i just copied the wpa_supplicant.conf into /etc and this is what i have in the file
I then run
wpa_supplicant -d -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf -iwlan0 -Dwext
I can't get you the exact error message because I'm on method two editing the interface file, i seem to be getting more results from this.
iface lo inet loopback
iface wlan0 inet static
wpa-proto WPA RSN
wpa-psk bab8aeb43c9b0776db7d92f727429f9f13934504979d041359 5e1cad4ce2b81e
then i do
It seems like it configures correctly but when i do iwconfig it's always Access Point: Not-Associated
And if i do iwlist scan i get no results from wlan0
I've also tried using dhcp instead of static, but i get horrible results from that.
DHCPDISCOVER on wlan0 to 255.255.255.255 port 67 interval 6
DHCPDISCOVER on wlan0 to 255.255.255.255 port 67 interval 13
it does this about 5 times and then quits
total noob too..
