    Default connection fails in wifi manager?

    Hello, I set up my AP as tricky as I could to try and crack it. For example I did not broadcast the essid and I set up mac filtering and am 128 bit encrypted instead of 64.

    I then connected my legitiment lappy to the accessis point (that lappy is a windows box)

    1.I then fired up kismet and got the hidden essid.

    2.I spoofed my BT3 boxes MAC to the same as my windows lappy.

    3. I then did the whole deauth thing and all went well I got my key cracked with aircrack it said KEY FOUND: [<KEY IN HERE>] (ASCII: <name of my ap>)
    (I know this key is correct as this is how I connected my windows lappy)

    4. Now I have the key but cann not connect in the wireless assistant. for some reason it just says connection failed nomatter what I do?

    Do i need to disconnect my windows lappy with the real mac address first?
    (for example can not connect two systems with the same MAC?)

    Thank you very much for your time.

    People advise against using the Wireless Assistant. It's really, really bad.
    The best way would be to connect with iwconfig through a terminal.

    iwconfig rausb0 essid (your essid) key (your key)
    dhclient rausb0

    replace rausb0 with your interface
