    Default Can't crack my own network :(

    Hello,

    Lately I've been reading about cracking WPA and WEP, so I decided to try and crack my own network.

    At first I had WPA, but airodump-ng couldn't see my station. It picked up many unencrypted station and a couple of WEP encrypted ones but not WPA (my other station). Why?

    Then I changed my network to WEP, and airodump-ng finally detected my station.
    So I decided to attempt an injection with aireplay-ng
    Code:
    aireplay-ng -1 30 -e myNetwork -a 00:18:6e:11:64:dd -h 00:1b:77:8e:f7:a5 wifi0
    It gave me an odd message saying that wifi0 interface is not 00:1b:77:8e:f7:a5, so I used macchunger to change my mac address
    Code:
    macchunger -m 00:1b:77:8e:f7:a5 wifi0
    and started aireplay-ng again.
    Code:
    bt ~ # aireplay-ng -1 30 -e myNetwork -a 00:18:6e:11:64:dd -h 00:1b:77:8e:f7:a5 wifi0
    10:23:18  Waiting for beacon frame (BSSID: 00:18:6E:11:64:DD) on channel 11

    Attack was unsuccessful. Possible reasons:
    
        * Perhaps MAC address filtering is enabled.
        * Check that the BSSID (-a option) is correct.
        * Try to change the number of packets (-o option).
        * The driver/card doesn't support injection.
        * This attack sometimes fails against some APs.
        * The card is not on the same channel as the AP.
        * You're too far from the AP. Get closer, or lower
          the transmit rate.
    * Perhaps MAC address filtering is enabled - No MAC filtering.
    * Check that the BSSID (-a option) is correct. - Correct.
    * Try to change the number of packets (-o option). - Why?!
    * The driver/card doesn't support injection. - aireplay --test wifi0 says it does.
    * This attack sometimes fails against some APs. - What does this mean?
    * The card is not on the same channel as the AP. - How can I configure it then?
    * You're too far from the AP. Get closer, or lower the transmit rate. - If I get any closer it will become a wired connection.


    I'm using BackTrack3, and ipw3945 (with ipwraw).
    Any idea what am I doing wrong?


    Thank you.

    Try:

    airmon-ng start wifi0
    before using airodump etc.

    Sometimes... being too close to your AP can also cause problems.

    Hey .lonewolf, thanks for the reply
    I started airmon-ng and my interface is in monitor mode, I can even sniffer random traffic (a dream come true ), but still get this problem.

    And Trauma, can you post a link to this tutorial, thank you.

    Can you post your iwconfig and ifconfig outputs for further reference?

    I think this is what |Trauma| is probably talking about.

    See you may be getting feedback if ure too close to the access point plus if you've got any mobile phones by within the range too tht could be creating complications. OR i suggest NOT using macchanger when trying to crack the access point. Cause i've ad MAJOR problems when i've used macchanger when i've connected to the access point. I get cut off like 2 minutes after using it. Plus i don't know if the drivers are 100% with BT ipw3945. M8 i'll give ya a suggestion.Get one of them ALFA network cards. They're based around the RTL 8187 chipset and they're the tools for the GODS when cracking access points. REally fast plus you can change the power levels toos :-D. Let me know how ya get on!!!! Phil

    Code:
    airmon-ng <start|stop|check> <interface> [channel]
    airmon-ng start wifi0 *insert channel here*

    Phil128, just curious, what ALFA card would you suggest?

    Can this reference be backed by any Senior Members/Mods?

    I might be a little off topic, but curious none the less.

    Check out the which wireless card to use post. (under tutorials section)

    A lot of mods and senior members have posted there and given thier opinions. There's also another thread about which wireless card are you using? Plenty of people have posted in there and made a few comments on what they like best and what they don't like. Remember everyone has different opinions and there's no perfect card for everyone.

    There is a good discussion on the Alfa drivers and commands in this forum under Specialist-wireless - alfa AWUS036H testing results ...
    That's why I say hey man nice shot. What a good shot man.
