What is ACK? (aircrack)
I hope someone has the sympathy to answer at least some of my doubts as there are other people asking for help too.
I have a broadcom bcm4318 on my Gateway mx7515 laptop. I'm using the Live backtrack 3 BETA cd. I've been having luck in getting many things right working in aircrack. The part what I'm stuck on is the injection part 4.
I am able to inject, this is because I used the command "aireplay-ng -9 linksys (mac) eth1" to test my card's injection capability.
waiting for beacon frame (BSSID: mac) on channel 6
Trying to broadcast probe requests...
Injection is working!
Found 1 AP
This next part where I do the ARP requests is where I run into doubt.
I run the command aireplay-ng -3 -b (mac) -h (mac) eth1
and then it reads after a while: 150000 packets (got 0 ARP requests and 7000 ACKs), sent 0 packets...(0 pps)
Did I forget some first step? I've only been abel to get ACKs and no packets or ARPs.
Can someone explain to me whats going on, and what should I do?
try a different attack, my favourite -4 attack.
also the broadcom card is not worthwhile having, i think it can only inject or sniff, cant do both at the same time....
Buy something wiht atheros or the Alfa external usb(cigarette pack sized one)
I just got BackTrack CD 2 days ago and never had any linux OS experience, but I did it! I was able to hack into my own WEP at 10pps (don't laugh) it wouldn't go any faster without giving that error, but in an hour + half I got the key! Not bad for a 2 year old laptop with an integrated card that I hardly used anyways, plus the mouse got to the cheese, and thats all I care.

But I am also looking fo an USB adapter that you can get off amazon that is under or $50 for x-mas.
are you trying it in your own AP? does it have any other wireless clients?
I tried it in my own AP, no other clients, same thing happened.... but I had then my wired connection ping the AP's IP and it started re-injecting packets...
p.s.: my card is intel 3945
I think my downstairs computer was plugged into the wireless router when I did this. I have a broadcom 4318 integrated card. I don't fully understand when a router feels like sending packets, I wish someone posted explaining it.

Ya, ACK means the Acknowledgment flag of the packet has been set. It is the final step in a TCP 3-way handshake verifying that the connection has been established and data is on the way.
You guys are making me laugh
"I have no idea about networking, protocols or anything else, but i will now hack my router or PC"
In my opinion only 1 of 10 in here knows what he is doing with aireplay, aircrack,......
Sooo before you ask basically question read wiki...
I think the reason ur not getting any IV's is cause there is no activity on the AP and no clients connected. U using the beta or final version?
