Question about ettercap
Greetings, I have a question regarding ettercap. After screwing around for a week I was finally able to learn how to obtain the wep key from my test router using airodump, aircrack, etc. So I have read that all of the .cap files can then be decoded in ettercap. This is where I am stumped though. When I open the .cap file in ettercap-gtk and then click on "view"-"set the WEP key" and enter the key it says "Unsupported WEP key length". I have the man page and it says to do the following:
-W, --wep-key <KEY>
You can specify a WEP key to decrypt WiFi packets. Only the packets decrypted successfully will be passed to the decoders stack, the others will be skipped with a message.
The parameter has the following syntax: N:T:KEY. Where N is the bit length of the wep key (64, 128 or 256), T is the type of the string ('s' for string and 'p' for passphrase). KEY can be a string or an escaped hex sequences.
Aircrack gave me the key in Hex so I used the --wep-key '64:s\x01\x02...command but no matter what i do it still tells me the length is unsupported. Am I missing a step or just misreading what this program is capable of, or just way out there? Thanks for any help possible
Not sure if you have a typo in your command but there is definately a difference between the example option for the wep-key and the command you typed.
