    Default Is it possible?

    Hi there!

    First of all I have to tell you that I am a noob. But only to WPA cracking, not in general. ;-)

    I have a bet running with my neighbor that I will penetrate his wifi security in less than 4 weeks and get 50 EUR for it.

    Now I really wanna do that. Here is some information that I have gathered:

    • SSID is livebox_XXXX (where X stands for letter or number - it a generic router ssid). So I suggest no hash tables here?

    • WPA2

    • Password is supposed to be a generic one that's written on the bottom of the router. It is a pure 26 digit number password


    Do you think there is a method of penetrating this network?

    My PC is a Q6600 and I have a NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTS (the second one).

    I realize that just brute forcing the 26 digit password is impossible, so I need a penetration plan. :-)

    Thank you very much for your time and input.

    Regards

    Xel.Ra

    P.S.:
    Please don't give me any advice like "Just break the windows and look up the number on the router."!

    That is the most original story I have ever heard. No one has ever tried that "bet with my neighbor" line before </sarcasm>

    I have a bet that you are not going to get any help here.
    We don't care if you have a million euro bet with said neighbor.
    It's not your network so leave it alone unless you can prove through the relevant anonymity of the internet that you do indeed have this permission.
    Might want to re-read those rules you agreed to before you make another post, that way you will not that it is against the rules to make more than one thread on the same subject.

    I see pureh@te beat me to the punch.

    You made the bet. Put up or shut up......

    Now I really wanna do that. Here is some information that I have gathered:

    • SSID is livebox_XXXX (where X stands for letter or number - it a generic router ssid). So I suggest no hash tables here?
    • WPA2

    Likely.

    My PC is a Q6600 and I have a NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTS (the second one).

    Just like people shouldn't pick fights they can't win, you shouldn't make bets you can't win.

    Please adhere to the forums rules you agreed to when you registered:

    • We do not condone any illegal activity at all.
    • Use sensible descriptive titles in your posts - not titles such as "Please Help!!" or "Need Assistance" or "what Am I Doing Wrong?" etc
    • Do not post about breaking into networks that do not belong to you and for which you have no permissions.
    • Posts like - "Oooh! look!! I've cracked my neighbours wireless AP" or "How do I hack a network!?" are not needed here, thanks.
    I'm a compulsive post editor, you might wanna wait until my post has been online for 5-10 mins before quoting it as it will likely change.

    I know I seem harsh in some of my replies. SORRY! But if you're doing something illegal or posting something that seems to be obvious BS I'm going to call you on it.

    Do people ever read the rules of this forum? I only ask because it seems there is no end to these types of posts. You know the second thing I did when joiningg this forum? (besides reading the rules...) I read all of the "Idiot's Corner" posts to help insure I never land there... Just wondering why it seems no one else does...

    I'll take this as rhetorical. I would like to see the statistics behind the number of seconds between activating account and clicking "new thread". I bet it is small.

    Oh sure, just fragrantly flaunt your power over us little people!



    This very same problem has plagued a couple of forums I administer and moderate, and it is always a very small number of morons who cause the greatest number of ulcers for the mods and admins.

    Although, I think I may have just thought of a solution: In the rules, embed two or three bits of information. Then those things have to be concatenated together as a password/passphrase that must be entered in a dialog box before the membership is accepted. You could even have it rotate several phrases so that the chances of people posting it on other boards would be minimal.

    I'll have to ask a friend who is an expert on VBulletin whether this is practical to implement.
