    Default Getting a WPA random key ie SKY (uk)

    Sky tv in the uk generate their modem/routers with a random key 0-9 & a-z

    Ive seen a few utube vids and they seem to need a dictionary file... but as its a random key surely im thinking that the key will NOT appear in the dictionary file...

    so im wondering if there is a way/tut to show me a way of desyphering the key like the way of getting a WEP key?

    Hi and thank you for your replies, im new so please be gentle lol

    using BT 4 R2 boot cd

    Can you provide some more context? Where is this wireless device you want to access? What is the purpose of the device - is it a regular Internet router? Not being from the UK Im uncertain of what services Sky TV provide, but from the sound of it I would have thought it would be pay TV - how does a wireless router fit into this?
    Capitalisation is important. It's the difference between "Helping your brother Jack off a horse" and "Helping your brother jack off a horse".

    Sky TV also provide an ADSL service as well as the TV services. There was a thread going about this a while ago I think, something like "Default WPA keys!!" There's a lot of info on the different versions of sky routers in that thread so I think that could help you out.

    My friends Sky Broadband uses a Netgear router and that was using what apears to be random key 0-9 & a-z as a pass phrase for the WPA2. I changed it for him and the password for all Sky routers apears to be the same as can be found by google.

    Use either crunch or John the ripper, sky routers also use capital A-Z too so it could take some time, from the ones i have access to they are all 8 digits long, but then thats if they have been left as standard.
