    Default infinite loop in Reaver

    I have a problem with Reaver, this is similar to Issue 167 (http://code.google.com/p/reaver-wps/.../detail?id=167) .. The first 35-55 minutes everything is working as it should. But after that It seems that the same pin are sent over and over (infinite loop).

    reaver -i mon0 -b [MAC] -vv is the command I use! ( first i use wash to locate the router)

    The difference fron Issue 167 is the error message.. I don’t get any error code, just warnings (no code: 0x02 or 0x03 or 0x04) error..

    If I stop by hitting Ctrl+C.. Restart my computer and router and restart Reaver, i can choose to resume.. If I choose “yes” the same loop starts again with the exact same pin as before.. choosing “no” and it starts correct and works about 35-45 minutes before the infinite loop starts again (new numbers tho)

    wash is telling me that theres no protected lock@ router

    More info..

    It seems to me like is very unstable..This might be due to driver issue..The linux driver to this TL-WN722N is the ath9k_htc...But the driver also needs a firmware..So you might want to install the correct driver and also the firmware.

    Driver and chipset here: http://www.wikidevi.com/wiki/TP-LINK_TL-WN722N (Chart on Left side, ath9k_htc)..Click on ath9k_htc and it will take you here: http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Drivers/ath9k_htc

    Now read all about it and download driver and firmware..

    Luck.

    i have 722n too, and reaver works perfectly. reaver can repeat one pin for a long time (up to 15 minutes and more) and it's ok if after that percents are changin..try to play with options -t (1-10 default 5) -d (0-8? default 1) also u can type -S for faster work and -v (not -vv) to output only pins and percents..good luck

    I too have this issue. Reaver seems to be ok for a few minutes then can't seem to get past itself to move on to next wps attempt..Backtrack rc3 Gnome edition here.
