    reset your router and reconfigure the password again.

    As for difference with shared and open key.. google search for it.

    Unhappy

    I dont see why resetting the password on my router will do anything
    Im not in a hurry to change my network settings just so that back track can connect I dont understand why it would see the SSID/netowrk name
    Ive also tried manualy
    1)ifconfig <your interface> up

    2)iwconfig <your interface> essid <your essid> channel <your channel> ap <your router's mac address> key restricted <hex value of wep key>

    3)dhcpcd -nd <your interface>
    but get this erroe messaage after step 2
    Error for wireless request "Set Frequency" (8B04) :
    SET failed on device wlan0 ; Operation not permitted.
    i googled open/shared key but i dont understand how to find out which one my router is obviously i have tried both options open and shared and they both dont work ...if i log into my router through windows /browser it has no option in the router that i can see that says wehter or not it is open or shared ...no tick boxes or anything for this option that i can see
    my router/accespoint/intergrated service router /switch is a netgear wgt 624
    Please help
    Regards

    The error indicates that your wireless card does not allow setting of the channel while in managed mode. The rt8187 chipset does this, not sure what others act the same way.

    You may be over thinking the process. Try this: change the specific settings, (interface, essid, key, to match yours)

    Code:
    reboot
    iwconfig wlan0 essid "your ssid" key 1234567890
    ifconfig wlan0 up
    - wait until you have successfully associated with your AP. It may take a few minutes, then run:

    Code:
    dhcpcd wlan0
    Also, if your ssid has special characters or spaces, you need to put it in quotes like I did above.

    I enterd
    bt ~ # iwconfig wlan0 essid JDMAC1 key B51E047D24
    and got back
    Error for wireless request "Set Encode" (8B2A) :
    SET failed on device wlan0 ; Operation not supported.
    tried it with " " around the essid as wel and got same error
    wireless assistant in the gui can see the channel and the essid/network name so i assuming the problem with the key but i obviously dont want to take down the wep key on my router wep is not even as safe as wpa the wep key is all i got protecting my network wich is pityful as it is

    1. What kind of card and drivers are you using?
    2. What is the output of ifconfig?
    3. What is the output of iwconfig?
    4. Try running each iwconfig command individually (I've seen stranger workarounds)
    iwconfig <inftc> essid foo
    iwconfig <intfc> key 1234567890

    Also, make sure you run the iwconfig command BEFORE you bring up your interface with ifconfig and make sure wlanassistant is not running.

    Just joined and am doing the obligatory three-day newbie time. A nearby friend has launched a challenge for me to discover his hidden essid. airodump-ng shows that his ssid is <length 6> but I have not been able to deauth using aireplay-ng up to this point. mdk3 brute-forcing using mdk3 wlan0 p -c <channel> -s 100 -t <APMAC> -b a starts by showing that the ssid is length 6 but the brute-forcing starts by looking for ssids with length 1, 2, 3, etc. and then jumps to length 8. Is there a flag with mdk3 that allows a search for six characters only, no more no less?
