    Default So I have cracked a wep key and it doesn't work? help?

    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.
    I've used:
    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.
    Manfree.

    I know this may seem like a dumb question considering that you're already aware that its a hex key, and you're a computer science student.... but You are taking out the colons between the numbers aren't you?

    Is the hex key retrieved the same as the one you used to set up the AP ?
    Running both KDE and GNOME BT5 flawlessly. Thank you !

    Are you using the right driver under preferences then advanced prefs where it says driver set it to (wext) that is mainly what i leave my alpha set on.

    and yes remove the colons between the key it gives you,also make sure your using the right wifi card under prefs eth0 auth1 wlan0 or that nature if your using two cards.set it to the right one. hope i help you some.
