Aircrack-ng very slow
First time posting here so hopefully in the right place.
Right, I have been using aircrack-ng 1.0 to crack WEP encryption of my friends network (with permission)
After gather packets on the correct channel using commview for wifi, and then exporting the logs to captures files i run aircrack.
On the Aircrack GUI I select all capture files and then the cmd.exe output shows.
Reading Packets, please wait...
And then it sits like this for around 30minutes. Is this normal??
I have 34 capture files, each at 30MB with a total of around 2million packets.
Running it on a laptop with 2.4ghz core2duo, 2MB RAM, 250HDD @7200rpm.
Should it normally take this long to read packets?
Are you loading up all 34 of those 30MB capture files at once? If so, yea, that speed is not too surprising.
Yeah. I am selection all the files from the aircrack GUI.
But this is the only way i can get enough IVs to crack WEP as so far i need around 2million packets to get 200,000 IVs.
is there a way around this? Or do i just have to wait?
you shouldn't need that many =P try just 50,000
It seems to require much more than that, it takes about 120,000 ivs to crack
wep at the moment.But my card is unable to inject. could this be why?
Whether your card can inject will not affect how many IVs you need. Whether you can inject will affect how many IVs you can generate.
If you have 120K I would think that would be enough, but if it isn't then keep capturing.
