    ah well my default one is 9 digits. Plus the extra goods. Someone once told me to add a character thats a special symbol like cubed. Makes it even harder to crack.

    so why use anything except wpa2 with a complicated password?
    its not impossible, just highly unlikely that a word/phrase such as the above will be in someones dictionary.

    The odds of someone getting to my machine remotely is pretty slim. Once they have physical access to it, it really doesn't matter what the password is.
    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69

    Yeah not impossible.....only to most
    But My dictionary would deffo have & would crack it with airolib-ng in about 5 mins

    But I agree with most the post here, dont use wep, use wpa+wpa2 aes/tkip & after you get the key, yeah you could prob's use hydra & get into the router & clear the logs, but also if they have mac address filtering on, there are also ways around this too

    best of luck

    good question, especially given that WPA enterprise EAP and LEAP are vulnerable

    perhaps WPA2 with a hard password is hard to manage from a system admin point of view?

    True. Given my environment I'm not really worried about that too much just on my part. Plus, they'd have really nothing to gain. Except maybe... a few mostly rare games, one of which is a notorious hentai visual novel. XP. O wait. Well. They have access to a bank account that for the most part is dried up. But on this particular machine there's no leads that I even have one. Besides this post.

    How sure are you that the password you refer to is not in his dictionary?
