Connecting hidden SSID
Hello people, I've been giving a shot to bt2 recently and I don't have a clue on how to connect to a hidden SSID network. I manage to set up my ipw3945ABG interface and I can see other wireless networks on my area, but I can't connect to the hidden one (which I'm currently connecting through from my Ubuntu install), Any help is appreciated, thanks in advance.
I have similar problem: I see the hidden networks, but I cannot crack them.
So, my Q is: how can you get the SSID, from a hidden network, without any clients.
And about your problem:
What command did you probe out?
What did you exactly do, for the connection?
are you talking about the ESSID? If it is hidden you need to deauthenticate a client using that router by forging deauth packets, and the ESSID will be revealed in the Airodump window. - you cant auth/assoc with the router without its extended service set id.
