    Default Is my wireless card compatible with the wep crack?

    Hi everybody!

    This is my first post in the forum

    I've searched in the list of compatible wireless cards in this forum but could not find
    mine in there:
    Atheros AR928X B/G Wireless

    my laptop is: asus n81vp

    Can anyone help me find out if it's compatible or not with the wep crack?

    Thanks in advance!

    Why don't you try it and see?
    Capitalisation is important. It's the difference between "Helping your brother Jack off a horse" and "Helping your brother jack off a horse".

    The Forum Rules, Forum FAQ and the BackTrack Wiki... learn them, love them, live them.

    There is also a wiki that has a lot of these common issues.

    aireplay-ng has an option "-9" that is called test.
    sudo aireplay-ng -9 [wireless interface goes here!]

    does it say "Injection is working!".

    Thanks I'll try it when I get home and have my other computer with me.

    I tried just using it but it's my first time using it so I don't know if it's the card problem or just me not knowing how to use it...

    How do I know my wireless interface?...

    This explains exactly how to do that. Like I said, the wiki has a lot of these answers. Try it out, it's full of useful things. Especially if you're new to linux.

    Thanks a lot m8! I'll try them all today! cheers

    I tried connecting by going to:
    internet-->Wireless Assistant
    and I get an error:
    "No usable wireless devices found. Wireless Assistant will now quit."

    Tried going by this page:
    hXXp://backtrack.offensive-security.com/index.php/Howto:_How_to_configure_your_Network_Card
    Tried the next command:

    iwconfig -a
    (with space)
    and I get:
    -a No such device

    iwconfig-a
    (without space)
    and I get:
    -bash: iwconfig-a: command not found

    iwconfig
    I get:
    lo no wireless extensions
    eth0 no wireless extensions

    Is there a way for me to connect to the free wireless I have here?

    Thanks in advance!

    Do not create multiple threads with the same subject/topic in them.
    One thread is enough.
    Not to mention the edit button on your posts is there for a reason. Use it.
    To be successful here you should read all of the following.
    ForumRules
    ForumFAQ
    If you are new to Back|Track
    Back|Track Wiki
    Failure to do so will probably get your threads deleted or worse.

    Read the rules, they clearly say your posts will be moderated.

    Based on how you are interacting with iwconfig, I suggest you take a step back and learn linux before trying to tackle BT.
