try looking at this tutorial.
I'm currently trying to crack a WEP to test out network security for a neighbor friend. I'm planning to switch their network over to WPA for them over the weekend but thought I'd get their permission to try and crack their current set up.
I've tried to crack my WEP routers to no avail in the past. Here is my issue.
I'm following the directions from this tutorial: forums.remote-exploit.org/showthread.php?t=9063
When I use this command, this is what I get after several minutes:
I'm not sure why there are 0 ARP requsts and 0 ACKs. If there is anymore information that's needed please let me know!Code:aireplay-ng -3 -b 00:18:F8:50:E5:35 -h 00:11:22:33:44:55 wlan0 04:37:07 Waiting for beacon frame (BSSID: 00:18:F8:50:E5:35) on channel 6 Saving ARP requests in replay_arp-0612-043707.cap You should also start airodump-ng to capture replies. Read 25981 packets (got 0 ARP requests and 0 ACKs), sent 0 packets...(0 pps)
I started using this guide: hxxp://forums.remote-exploit.org/showthread.php?t=7872 which worked flawlessly on my neighbor friend's access point. It turns out their key is their phone number. I am still unable to successfully crack wep with the first guide that I linked.
I had another issue that arose though. My wireless networks have essid length of more than 7.
How do I find out the essid name when airodump only displays up to 7 characters?
PS I was successfully able to crack my friend's WPA encryption using a tutorial from xploitz. The dictionary had 4 entries though one of which was the correct key
Thanks for the tutorial on aircrack.
If an Essid is longer than 7 character how can one figure out the name of it? I have two access points that I own that are called HappyDude and HappyPuppy. I'm trying to test to see if someone would be able to crack them and how they would go about doing that.
The sama way one would figure out a ESSID of any length. Wait until a client associates with the AP at which point the ESSID is broadcasted as clear text and can be intercepted. It is also possible to bruteforce the ESSID using mdk3. If the name doesn't fit inside the current konsole window you can just resize it to your liking.If an Essid is longer than 7 character how can one figure out the name of it?
