Crack wifi Protect setup (WPS) to access wifi network

Reaver performs a brute force attack against an access point’s WiFi Protected Setup pin number. Once the WPS pin is found, the WPA PSK can be recovered and alternately the AP’s wireless settings can be reconfigured.

Requires linux


tar -xzvf reaver-1.2.tar.gz
cd reaver-1.2/src/
make install
airmon-ng wlan0
reaver -i mon0 -b -vv

Doesn’t work against my Belkin N300

Cracking WEP no clients from Virtual Machine

Ok another WEP cracking guide because I just felt there wasn’t enough out there already :-)

I am going to crack my wireless access point with a Macbook pro running Backtrack 5 as a virtual machine. To do this in a virtual machine you must use a usb wifi adapter, built in hardware will NOT WORK in a VM.

My setup is as follows

  • Backtrack 5 R1 VM
  • USB Alfa AWUS036H (100mW) wifi adapter with 5dB arial (Very cheap off eBay and a lot with free delivery out there)

Aircrack-ng fixed channel mon0: -1

Aircrack would not play nice on Ubuntu with a Intel Wireless iwl3945 wifi adapter

It would always say “mon0 is on channel -1, but the AP uses channel x”



You need to patch the compact-wireless package and rebuild

Copy and paste the below commands into a terminal

Install your kernel headers if you don’t already have them, if you do skip the first command



sudo apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r)
tar -jxf compat-wireless-3.6.2-1.tar.bz2
cd compat-wireless-3.6.2-1
sudo apt-get install patch
patch ./net/wireless/chan.c channel-negative-one-maxim.patch
sudo make install
sudo make unload
sudo reboot
