    Default WEP shown as WPA2?


    I have a weird problem. BT5 has been working great, and I like Gerix. But, when I was showing my friend how to use it (I wanted to surprise him), something weird happened. When scanning, it picks up his network as WEP. I go through the regular fake auth, inject, etc. But, at that time, in the command(?) window, it shows it as WPA2. After I get enough packet and run crack, it fails (hangs at some point). Is this a known bug? I've only used BT5 on my own network and a couple of friends, but this only happens with his network. Any clues on what's going on would be helpful. Thank you.

    First of all this has really nothing to do with Backtrack.

    Also if your friends network is so strange go ask him what his encryption is.
    Back|track giving machine guns to monkeys since 2007 !
