I've been trying to learn WEP cracking for obvious security reasons / I have some free time. There seems to be a problem when I try running kismet though as follows:
At first it was not showing any kind of connection from the device so i used
Launching kismet_server: //usr/bin/kismet_server
Suid priv-dropping disabled. This may not be secure.
No specific sources given to be enabled, all will be enabled.
Non-RFMon VAPs will be destroyed on multi-vap interfaces (ie, madwifi-ng)
Enabling channel hopping.
Enabling channel splitting.
NOTICE: Disabling channel hopping, no enabled sources are able to change channel.
Source 0 (intel): Enabling monitor mode for iwl3945 source interface wlan0 channel 6...
FATAL: GetIFFlags: interface wlan0: No such device
Still i'd receive the same error as above. I'm sure I'm doing something completely wrong.The compatability list says this device is support but not right away [something is disabled apparently and I'm guessing I'm missing it..]
sudo ip link set ath0 up
sudo iwconfig ath0 essid any
Here's some additional information; and thank you in advance!
lo no wireless extensions.
eth0 no wireless extensions.
