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.
Watch the video to see it in action and then read the post full the break down
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)
