    Default aircrack or cowpatty

    i tried aircrack with a dictionary i grabbed online (10MB, approx 1M words). it took a while for aircrack to scan so i was wondering if cowpatty saves time.
    in addition i have a unique essid and from what ive read pre-calculated hash wouldnt be on the tables.
    also is there a way to get 4 way handshake without authenticating

    Hmmm my 120GB dictionary still only nails about 12-13% of passwords. Not to mention it is a very good world list. The essid tells me a lot about the person. If its says "cute flowers" I know that I should first render personal things like names of pets, kid names and other emo stuff. If it die666_%&###!&ffd I don't even try. car names and brands tell me to render "guy stuff". Make sure you have good a Nvidia card if you are going to do wpa stuff!

    I would do some more reading on how this all works.
    All the best

    Exactly as Onyro said

    also use CUPP
    Using backtrack for the first time is like being 10 years old again with the keys to a Ferrari.
