WEP Connection Problem
Okay here is my problem. I cracked my WEP and aircrack decrypted it 100% and it is my exact WEP key. Now when I go to connect it asks me for the WEP key, then I type it in and it keeps saying that it is the incorrect key. I am connecting from my laptop, what is wrong here?
Does it say incorrect key or connection failed? Sometimes you have to set the options for connection timeout again. Check to see that it's set to like 15 seconds instead of one, which is what it was for me at first.
It tells me that the WEP is incorrect when in fact it is 100% correct. I've tried over a dozen of times and still the same thing.
Is it really correct or is aircrack just telling you its 100 percent correct. You should know if its your key.
I assume you are using the hex key that aircrack outputs? xx:xx:xx:xx:xx
I have had trouble connecting to wep using this hex key as well for what it's worth, but I was using my WUSB54GC USB device through VMware so I think that is my problem....idk
Yes I know what my key is and aircrack has decrypted 100 percent. For example, I am entering in b03acd8842. Do I need to enter like b0:3a:cd:88:42?
Why ask?! Just try it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
For mine when I enter the Key in Wireless Assistant I do not include the :::::
Are you using windows to connect? If so check your key index, you could be entering the right key, but it might be key index #3 instead of #1 default
What card are you using?
if atheros try this:
wlanconfig ath0 destroy
wlanconfig ath0 create wlandev wifi0
ifconfig ath0 up
iwconfig ath0 essid NETWORKNAME key 11:11:11:11:11:11
On my alfa i gotta use this:
iwconfig wlan0 mode managed
iwconfig wlan0 essid NETWORKNAME key 11:11:11:11:11:11:11
from memory, so hope its right!
to find the ascii code just go in word hold alt then press the decimal numbers
this will give you funny character, just copypaste it as the WEP key. enjoy
