I wanted to show a friend of mine how easy cracking a WPA key was so I went to crack his. I ran everything the proper way and get airodump-ng to start recording its findings in a file as normal. Now when I go to run deauthetication to force a handshake. I get nothing I let it run for a while and still get nothing. Now I do see on my airodump menu a station with a mac pop up so I tried to attack that machine but still for some reason I dont get a handshake. The data packets are still climing steady I mean I pull about 1500 every 10min or so. So I know no one is using the internet. My real confusion is the mac that comes up as a station yet wont deauthenticat and re-connect. Is that the router? or maybe a firewall built into the router?
