    Default aircrack-ng on linksys router..

    hi friends

    first of all, sorry if i double ask but is it possible to successfully install aircrack-ng suite to linksys router and then use the linksys terminal as a pnetesting enviroment? i am asking this because i am going to buy linksys router and kind of doing can antenna for it. my laptop has internal wifi antenna so i am unable to make one for my laptop... i thought if linksys runs on linux it should be possible to use it for pentesting. I have googled the question and didn't understand fully so i am asking you guys and ladies :]

    thank you

    Because, you have absolutely no idea about aircrack-ng.....

    No. However did it on linux system, which is likely to be installed on router.

    No, aircrack can't be installed onto a router.
    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69

    @blackroselt
    The linksys routers usually have broadcom chipsets and are therefore a bad choice for wireless pentesting from my perspective. If you want to buy a wireless router just for this purpose, I'd recommend you a La Fonera Router - it's atheros hardware and thus perfectly fits your needs and it's cheap - around 20€ at ebay incl. shipping. OpenWrt runs just fine on these little babies, the madwifi-ng drivers are already patched for injection (monitor mode) and aircrack-ng is in the OpenWrt repository - just an "opkg install aircrack-ng" away. While I'd like to avoid self-advertising here, you maybe should have a look at the Piranha firmware for the La Fonera - this is a customized version of OpenWrt targeted on wireless pentesting.
