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:
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.
