ok i had this longer and more detailed forum but i didn't submit it fast enough so it logged me out and deleted my forum.

so i'm trying to bypass mac filtering. after cracking my wep i thought i'd try to do it with mac filtering.

i'm running backtrack 3 ra0 Ralink b/g rt2500

i know i need to change my mac address to one of the accepted mac address.

after doing all of the following:

bt ~ # airmon-ng stop ra0

Interface Chipset Driver

ra0 Ralink b/g rt2500 (monitor mode disabled)

bt ~ # ifconfig ra0 down
bt ~ # macchanger --mac 00:11:22:33:44:55 ra0
Current MAC: 00:0f:66:e6:bf:aa (Cisco-linksys)
Faked MAC: 00:11:22:33:44:55 (Cimsys Inc)
bt ~ # airmon-ng start ra0

Interface Chipset Driver

ra0 Ralink b/g rt2500 (monitor mode enabled)

knowing that 00:11:22:33:44:55 isn't an accepted mac address it wont work. so if i'm correct you need the one that is under STATION. so first i find the networks around me:

bt ~ # airodump-ng ra0

00:16:B6:0F:F4:CD 0 411 1 0 6 48 WEP WEP doomsday

00:13:92:08:6B:FD -1 0 5 0 6 -1 WPA <length: 0>

before anyone has any red flags... i know my pwr is at 0. it has something to do with my driver not showing pwr levels. i haven't the slightest clue why it does this. all i know is i was able to crack the wep so it has to work. right?

now that i have the bssid i can figure out an accepted mac address. by putting in:

bt ~ # airodump-ng -c 6 -w dooms --bssid 00:16:B6:0F:F4:CD ra0

00:16:B6:0F:F4:CD 0 100 1730 26 0 6 48 WEP WEP doomsday

BSSID STATION PWR Rate Lost Packets Probes

here is the problem no matter how long i sit and wait the station never shows anything. it stays blank.

i've read it was pretty easy to bypass mac filtering so please be easy on me.

if anyone has any ideas on what the next step is i'd very much appreciate any help on this problem.

thanks in advance


lol ok i guess i answered my own question again. after reading something on another forum i turned on my girlfriends computer and sure enough i got a station mac address.

so now my next question is how do i use her accepted mac address on my computers denied mac address?

once again helped myself. after finding the accepted mac address i was able to spoof my mac address using:

ifconfig ra0 down hw ether 00:21:00:14:A8:48
ifconfig up

i guess you can find out anything on your own. but it probably wouldn't have taken me 6 hours.

thanks for the forums at least guys.
