    In future perhaps a little time on Google would be better... Nevertheless - I will help as best I can.

    I too am new to BT4, and am unable to help you with the slow beacon count - but I will be interested to find out the answer.

    How close are you to the AP?

    There could be quite a few reasons. Go look at the numerous tutorials on the aircrack-ng site.


    also is there any tutorial link that works for wep hacking with bt?
    There is a new tool quite useful to hackers out there called Google. It's pretty self explanatory. Also, the amount of wep cracking guides on the internet is mind-boggling. If you google "Backtrack wep" (not even using the words crack, hack, break, etc) you still return a full page of guides, tutorials, etc. Have fun.

    as first. 200k to 500k ivs you needed in the old version of aircrack, i believe. in the new aircrack-ng suite is a better algorism integrated. so when you have luck you crack your ap in 1 min with ~5000 ivs. but the ivs you need can vary. ok and your problem with the pps... try to use a lower rate. 1M or so. for the rest have fun with google .

    or you can just use gerix wifi cracker, you probably have it or its in the repos, just set the card, select the one button attack and sit back till you crack! Then change your AP to wpa ftw
