Hi, Im quite new in linux, I'v been using Ubuntu, but havent neveu used terminal etc.
I have ALFA Networks AWUS036H. and Im using BT4 beta on VMware Workstation.
according to following site I have to edit Kismet.conf to "source=rt8180,wlan0,ALFA"
hxxp:/ / backtrack.offensive-security.com/index.php/HCL:Wireless#ALFA_Networks_AWUS036H
I think I'v done that, atleast I hope so.
Well Im trying to crack my home wlan (WPA PSK) key, I know that key, so Im just practisin this process
I'v been followin quides hxxp:/ /xxx. corelan.be:8800/index.php/2009/02/24/cheatsheet-cracking-wpa2-psk-with-backtrack-4-aircrack-ng-and-john-the-ripper/
Im trying to capture that password:
airodump-ng mon0 --channel 10 --bssid 00:19:5B:52:AD:F7 -w /tmp/wpa2
I even get that WPA handshake, I stop it Ctrl^C.
It doesn't create that last xxx.kismet.csv - file.
root@bt:/# ls /tmp/wpa2* -al
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 35189 2009-02-21 13:04 /tmp/wpa2-01.cap
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 476 2009-02-21 13:04 /tmp/wpa2-01.csv
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 590 2009-02-21 13:04 /tmp/wpa2-01.kismet.csv
Its like ---"--- wpa2-01.txt
I managed to get john the ripper to work, its been working over 26h and it havet find my 8-letters key yet, so I would like to use wordlist, but i cant get it working.
When I do this (which real files and -b)
aircrack-ng –w /tmp/wordlists/word.lst -b 00:19:5B:52:AD:F7 /tmp/wpa2*.cap
open failed: No such file or directory.
Ls shows that these files are there.
So what Im doing wrong.
PS. sorry for my bad english...
Now I managed to capture some pacets to use whit Wireshark.
airodump-ng mon0 --channel 6 -w /tmp/FILENAME
I run it and let it capture all files, and I even got a Handshake .
Then I copied that Filename.cap file from VMware BT4 beta to my desktop (Win 7) and opened that cap file whit Wireshark. Then I decrypted it whit my WPA-PSK key.
There was just one problem. It didnt capture all traffic just a part of it.
And why I cant get wireshark working on BT4 beta?
