For anyone who doesn't know about this, this program uses a modified algorithm to crack a 104bit wep key with only 40,000 packets!! I was able to crack mine (which usually needs about 2,000,000 packets with only 60,000)
Check it out here:
you can download it here:
On a note, if anyone has problems doing a MAKE. You need to open up the Makefile and move the "-lpcap" switch to the end of the gcc line. Also, you may need to install the newest libpcap package.
Make sure you read the website. You need to capture using Airodump WITHOUT the --ivs option!
Congratulations and thanks for this advice zambuka42!
Third thread. Search before you post
Did it really bother you that much? You were strolling thru the forums & saw that I posted a thread explaining how to fix a problem many people were having & decided to scold me for posting a topic with a name in common with 2 other posts?

after installin aircrack-ptw and gettin all the packets is there anythingelse i need to do before i run aircrack-ptw or do i just open a command prompt and type in aircrack-ptw <filename>.cap? thanks
Thats about all you need to do, just make sure its in your current directory or its location is in your $path. You don't even need to stop airodump-ng or whatever you use from running either, just run the prog and if it cant find the key leave it for a short while to let your capture program get a bit more data to work with and run it again.
thx tim..one more question..how do i put it in my path? and thanks zambuka42 for the instructions on the fix.
you're probably all in favor of doing it all manually but will airoscript work with this aircrack version?
i usually just leave it up to airoscript to do all the work while i do my own work, =)
not as of now, aircrack-ng and aircrack-ptw are two completely different programs with similiar names. Your airoscript has no clue about it.
