    Hi, Im quite new in linux, I'v been using Ubuntu, but havent neveu used terminal etc.

    I have ALFA Networks AWUS036H. and Im using BT4 beta on VMware Workstation.
    according to following site I have to edit Kismet.conf to "source=rt8180,wlan0,ALFA"
    hxxp:/ /

    I think I'v done that, atleast I hope so.

    Well Im trying to crack my home wlan (WPA PSK) key, I know that key, so Im just practisin this process

    I'v been followin quides hxxp:/ /xxx.

    Im trying to capture that password:
    airodump-ng mon0 --channel 10 --bssid 00:19:5B:52:AD:F7 -w /tmp/wpa2
    I even get that WPA handshake, I stop it Ctrl^C.
    It doesn't create that last xxx.kismet.csv - file.
    root@bt:/# ls /tmp/wpa2* -al
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 35189 2009-02-21 13:04 /tmp/wpa2-01.cap
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 476 2009-02-21 13:04 /tmp/wpa2-01.csv
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 590 2009-02-21 13:04 /tmp/wpa2-01.kismet.csv
    Its like ---"--- wpa2-01.txt

    I managed to get john the ripper to work, its been working over 26h and it havet find my 8-letters key yet, so I would like to use wordlist, but i cant get it working.

    When I do this (which real files and -b)
    aircrack-ng –w /tmp/wordlists/word.lst -b 00:19:5B:52:AD:F7 /tmp/wpa2*.cap

    It says:
    Opening -w
    open failed: No such file or directory.

    Ls shows that these files are there.

    So what Im doing wrong.

    PS. sorry for my bad english...

    Now I managed to capture some pacets to use whit Wireshark.

    airodump-ng mon0 --channel 6 -w /tmp/FILENAME
    I run it and let it capture all files, and I even got a Handshake .
    Then I copied that Filename.cap file from VMware BT4 beta to my desktop (Win 7) and opened that cap file whit Wireshark. Then I decrypted it whit my WPA-PSK key.

    There was just one problem. It didnt capture all traffic just a part of it.

    And why I cant get wireshark working on BT4 beta?
