    Default Cracked my wireless for the first time!

    I am so happy, I just cracked my wireless network for the first time (64-bit). Took me 2 days, lol, cause my card does not support packet injection (Netgear MA311). What I did was collect 25,000 ivs and copied the .cap file to my usb drive... and since I suck at Linux, I downloaded aircrack 9.1 for windows and tried that way. But it still did not work. So what I did next was check the box that says "Use PTW attack," and bingo! Cracked it in about 1 minute! I am sure I could have done this in the command line in backtrack2, just do not know the specific command (I did try various commands suggested by different tutorials, maybe it is just the 0.7 version of aircrack in bt2, don't know). Sorry, don't know if this post was appropriate, thank you all (u know who u r) for helping this noob out!

    Congratulations, on first crack. You might want to invest in a card that suports packet injection .

    The command line to use if you are using the PTW method is:
    aircrack-ng -z -n 64 filename.cap

    -z tells it to use the PTW method
    -n 64 tells it that it is a 64 bit key, and this will speed up the process.
    filename.cap is the capture file.

    It is a development of the standard algorithm used to crack wep, it was developed by Andrei Pychkine, Erik Tews and Ralf-Philipp Weinmann. The methods that they developed to improve the cracking algorithm have since been incorporated into Aircrack-ng 0.9 and newer versions.

    Yeah, basically, along with what balding_parrot said, it is an advancement on the standard FMS/KoreK method that aircrack uses. It can crack WEP keys faster and with less IV's, but can only be used with ARP request and reply packets.

    That wep doc was a good read, is there a directory or site with more of those type papers?
