    Default cannot connect to WPA network

    Hello,

    My landlord has provided me with a password and him and his friends are able to connect using their Windows computers. I got a WPA handshake and added the password to a dictionary list but airocrack says the password isn't found. I show him the password he wrote but he insists it's correct.

    Please help me since I only make a little money online and need the net to earn money for food, and I don't use Windows

    Here's what I do:
    Code:
    airodump:
    00:12:CF:6C:57:73  -66       99      286    7   2  54e. WPA  TKIP   PSK  suat1
    
    root@l:/tmp# cat /etc/wpa_supplicant/net.conf 
    network={                                     
    ssid="suat1"                                  
    key_mgmt=WPA-PSK                              
    psk="a2341436z"                               
    }                                             
    
    root@l:/tmp# wpa_supplicant -Dwext -B -c /etc/wpa_supplicant/net.conf -i wlan0
    root@l:/tmp# dhclient wlan0

    Not sure what's wrong here! Everything looks fine.

    I'm not asking how to crack a wireless password. I have been given a password. Just asking if I'm doing anything wrong and what can I to solve this.

    Thank you.

    BTW,

    I used the same method to connect to other WPA-PSK connections before- is there any difference between WPA-PSK networks or should that one method I've done work for all of them?

    genjix,
    first of all you already post this here:
    http://forums.remote-exploit.org/wir...a-network.html

    Second it will be good idea to use edit button in your posts.

    Finally I don't know if you want the Internet to make some money to buy food. Maybe is true maybe is not.

    If you have the correct password then you should be able to connect to the Internet right away, if MAC filtering isn't enabled in the router.

    That I can not understand is why are you using BT4 for OS? Why don't you use another user friendly OS like Ubuntu? Your life will be easier.

    Hey,

    Thanks for your reply. I got it sorted now- they found me a cable to use. Will never know what was wrong I messaged the other mod to open my topic explaining the situation but he was being a douche saying he doesn't care about me.

    I am using Ubuntu but I posted here because everyone's such an expert on wireless.

    Swear it. I only had enough money for 10 days left otherwise I'd have to borrow money, fly to my home country and stay with parents. Now I got enough for 1 and half months hehe

    Actually I prefer a$$h*le and further more even before this last post I was going to ban you for opening another thread on the topic after I told you per pm not to do so.
    In addition I never said I don't care about you. I just don't care to support your stealing internet. Neither does anyone else here that is why you never received a valid response.
