    Question How do I convert the WEP to a usable key? - With attached .png

    Just to clear things up, I do realise that this is probably a noobish question, and for that I apologise. I have looked online for an answer, and have tried to sort it myself with my limited knowledge by using a hex-ascii converter with no luck.

    Basically, I have two networks to test, one at work and one at home. They both use WEP and the only difference between them that I am aware of is that my home network uses mac filtering. When I crack the work WEP It tells me 'Key Found! *Bunch of alpha-numeric numbers* *Password in text form*.

    But when I crack my home network I get no simple text password, what have I done wrong? (screenshot is as an attachment... I'm new to forums and unsure how to post a local file)stu2.png

    OK, So I was just being stupid. Not only did I figure out how to embed an image to my forum post, but I also managed to find out that the key (2F:4A:BLAH BLAH BLAH) can be used directly as a WEP password when the router prompts.

    So unless I am mistaken... I think we should all ignore this thread and pretend it never existed...

    Well if you have no clue about that, you most likely are doing something illegal.

    Illegal activities are for fools, I am merely clueless.

    A bit more complicated than just typing it in for anyone who looks this up -

    Linux/Backtrack : Open Wicd manager, click the AP you wish to connect to and select 'advanced'. At the bottom of this screen you have the checkbox 'Use Encryption'. Check this and select 'WEP (Hex)'. Now you can enter the Hex key (without the :'s) and click OK, then connect away.
