    Default Failed Fake Authentication Attack

    Hi, I am trying to crack my WEP key. But when I run a fake auth attack in aireplay with this command...
    aireplay-ng -1 0 -e Test_Network -a 00:12:17:09:d4:45 -h 00:11:22:33:44:55 ath0
    I get...
    Sending Authentication Packet
    Sending Authentication Packet
    Authentication successful
    Sending Association Packet
    Sending Authentication Packet
    Sending Authentication Packet

    Attack was unsuccessful. Possible Reasons:

    This is on my own router and I have all security settings at the lowest possible (It's a linksys WRT54G) and a 64-bit WEP key. I even have an old laptop connected to it just for the hell of it. I pretty much am making it as easy as possible to start. My card is the Netgear WAG511. I've even cracked another one of my networks a few months ago with this card (I've since given that router to a friend.) and now it won't work.

    Also, I would I go about doing an injection test on my card? I understand that aireplay-ng -9 ath0 no longer works. My card is on the campatibility list (aircrack-ng.org/doku.php?id=compatibility_drivers#which_is_the_bes t_card_to_buy) or do I need to install a certain driver?

    Any help or a point in the right direction is awesome. Thanks.

    I figured it out by myself.

    If anyone has the same issue in the future...
    In the commnd...
    aireplay-ng -1 0 -e Test_Network -a 00:11:22:33:44:55 -h 00:11:22:33:44:55 ath0

    If you have an (e)ssid with a special character in it you need quotes around it.

    The correct command would be...

    aireplay-ng -1 0 -e "Test Network" -a 00:11:22:33:44:55 -h 00:11:22:33:44:55 ath0

    Very stupid mistake yet probably common mistake.

    the aireplay-ng -0 is the deauth command :P

    you want aireplay-ng -1 0


    the aireplay-ng -9 ath0 command should still work, try updating your aircrack

    Sorry about that, I got the 0 and 1 mixed up. (I still have to memorize the commands if you couldn't tell. )
