    Default AP Association problem

    Hi all:
    When I use BT 4 beta, try to associate to a AP with the following command:

    aireplay-ng -1 0 -e Tom's Wireless -a XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX -h XX:XX:XX:XX:XX wlan0;

    After I hit enter, it gave me a ">" at a new line, nothing else happaned.
    Could anyone help me please?

    If there's a space in the name of the AP then you need to put it in inverted commas:

    Code:
    aireplay-ng -1 0 -e "Tom's Wireless" -a XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX -h XX:XX:XX:XX:XX wlan0
    


    I'm not sure whether the apostrophe is considered a "special character" at the Linux command line (I'd check it now only for I'm using an MS-Windows machine in an internet cafe), but if it is a special character, you'll need a backslash before it:

    Code:
    aireplay-ng -1 0 -e "Tom\'s Wireless" -a XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX -h XX:XX:XX:XX:XX wlan0
    
    Ask questions on the open forums, that way everybody benefits from the solution, and everybody can be corrected when they make mistakes. Don't send me private messages asking questions that should be asked on the open forums, I won't respond. I decline all "Friend Requests".

    See: man aireplay-ng /-e
    or FAQ "How to use spaces, double quote and single quote, etc. in AP names?" from aircrack-ng.org wiki.
