Basically I'm a computer science student and I've got an assignment to do on wireless cracking, I've set up a password proteccted wep AP.
I've snorted way over 30,000k packets and put them into a file called wep01.cap.
root@root:~# aircrack-ng wep01.cap
and it's given me the key in hex, so I've tried to use the key it's given me as the wep key for the AP and it's telling me it's a bad password. I'm lost as to what to do, any help would be very highly appreciated.
