    If you want to learn how to create your own table Google for "create wpa rainbow table" and read some of the links. I just tried it then, you can find references to the appropriate tools within the first 10 search results and from there you can do further searches to find out how to use said tools.

    You may also want to configure additional storage for your BT install - whether you download or create your own tables they will take up a lot of space.
    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.

    thanks for the info :-) also do you know when i use aircrack-ng it says there 1 handshake is this right or is that supposed to be 4 handshakes?

    ok i found Winrtgen to create the tables what hash do i use for wpa2? the bssid for the one i want to crack is 00:21:91:55:f0:e6 essid is lightowler, and also when i have made the rainbow table where do i put it? thanks

    winrtgen is not for wpa tables, its for making hash look up tables for ntlm or lm or something along those lines.

    If you want to generate a random word list you should look at the tool "crunch" in backtrack.

    If you want to create wpa tables look at "genpmk"

    and finally if you want to mangle or otherwise permutate a word list look at the --rules function of john the ripper

    creating those tables are not hard at all buddy. Like Lupin already stated, the first few google hits would get you on the right track. Using cowpatty's table generator tool, genpmk, it only needs 3 options to produce the appropriate rainbow table. Optionally, you can read my blog post on this topic here.
