WEP cracking


How long should the WEP crack process take with a 128 bit key?

I’ve let it run for at least 15 minutes and it still has completed.

  1. I run airmon-ng to set up monitoring of the access point and write to the file.
  2. I “fakeauth”/associate with the AP without any errors
  3. I run aireplay-ng to check for ARP packets etc (Note: I have to connect and reconnect to the AP with my machine to generate an ARP packet to get the process going as it sits there forever without generating any)
  4. I run aircrack-ng to start the cracking process.

Followed all the steps successfully, but I’ve noticed that aircrack-ng doesn’t keeping going. Almost like it runs out of IV’s to process?


Got it working!
