    Default 128 bit key, aircrack-ng keeps getting it wrong.

    Hello!
    I have looked around all over with this problem, however I cannot find a suitable answer.

    aircrack-ng has found me a key with this command:

    aircrack-ng -b homenet homenet-01.cap

    The attempt succeeded and I got the following 128-bit key (26 hex/13 ascii chars):
    75:49:49:37:52:84:65:83:56:20:99:22:37
    Translated to ascii it does not work.
    If I add my network manually, it still does not work, it's unidentified.
    Can anyone point me in the right direction on what I want wrong on?
    Also, I have used the same method a few times and got the exact same key....

    Thanks!
    Doug.

    Translated to ASCII ? Why do that?

    Exactly how are you adding it to your network?

    So, here's what I can suggest. First understand what aircrack-ng has found. Maybe read the website? Don't mean to be rude, but I think it's user error.

    You are right, sorry I don't actually know what I was saying.
    I have no idea why i tried to add that line "translate to ascii"
    Yes, I understand that this isn't a pass-phrase, it's a hex key, but no matter how I enter it into windows it won't except it. The only solution I thought of was using my realtek USB WLAN antenna to connect, with this it works, I can connect to my network and use it.

    This has now become a windows issue instead (why windows 7 doesn't like my hex key), but that's a different matter (and perhaps not for this forum)

    EDIT:
    Ahh, I apologize for all the confusion, the error I had was resolved - somehow, and you were right, it was a user error.

    Thanks!
    Doug.
