Who do you DeAuth?
So I've been reading up and trying things out to get my WEP key cracked, and I'm not 100% sure on one of the steps...
Now, at some point in time or another, I have to DeAuth a client that is connected to the AP in question.
I'm guessing I'm supposed to see all of that in Airodump, right? And the client that I want to DeAuth would be listed under the "Station" header, right?
So I've rtied 2 different methods to try to work with this.
airodump-ng -w capture -c 6 eth1
Now, when I run the first one, there are a bunch of Stations that get listed, but under BSSID, they all have (not associated). When I run the second one, there are no stations listed at all.
airodump-ng -w capture -c 6 --bssid (MAC of target AP) eth1
Does this mean that there are no clients associated with my target AP?
And why would there be so many (16+) stations listed that are not associated?
Have you locked your wifi card to the channel that your target AP is on?
This is the "guide" that I am following:
And yes, I did lock it.
Airodump should show the clients. Either there are none of them, or you are too far . When you see many unnassociated clients they could be windows zeroconfig PCs trying to find the net constantly.
Spyder_Snyper, that wep cracking tutorial uses channel 6 as an example. your also using that channel, is that the channel your ap is using.
humorously enough, it's on channel 6 too...
