    Default slow wpa

    Hi EVerybody,
    I am a little noob but got some questions.

    When I do a normal aircrack of a wpa it runs with 200-300 cracks per second
    So it takes forever.

    I ran some dictionary files with 5 milliion common words in them but password not in dictionary.

    I see the big 33 gig rainbow at: renderlab.net WPA-tables 33 gig
    But it seems the rainbow there only has a 1 million passwords and it HAS to be some specific in the list?
    So basically the rainbow list is worthless if someone has a password like:

    l0ngnondictionarypass01
    ?

    Yes. Which is why anyone who has a wlan and knows anything about it have passwords like that...

    I hear some people that said they could even use bruteforce and make it crack it.

    What is the best way for bruteforce if we assume their key is max 8-10 in length and numbers and eltters

    ./crunch 8 8 ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ | cowpatty -f - -s <essid> -r /path/to/cap/file.cap

    or should I use john + aircrack.
    What is fastest on this slow laptop?

    Mh is that your WLAN or one you need access to?

    That matters for telling you the fastest way.

    I try to crack my own wpa2 linksys now that has a 9 character letter password.

    How long will that take with the aircrack +john incremental?

    Can I use a GPU someway?

    Depending, if you want to try bruteforce with an old laptop try to set your password to 3 or max 4 characters.

    With an old laptop GPU isn't an option either.
