post_break Posted October 1, 2008 Share Posted October 1, 2008 So after some digging I couldn't find a Fon on the cheap. In doing so a friend recommended I check out airbase-ng which is basically the same thing as Jasager, it accepts probes from wireless devices and lets them connect with any SSID. After a few days of mentoring I was able to get airbase-ng to work properly and well, its nice not having to worry about carrying a Fon around or wondering when the battery is going to die that supplies it. This is NOT a slam of Jasager, I still plan on getting a Fon for this complete purpose because it is standalone. I could set up a Jasager + a tiny computer and log stuff. So I just want to get that out of the way. Jasager is pretty amazing and the developer should get donations for his work. Let me explain what airbase-ng is incase anyone is curious. Airbase-ng is a part of the aircrack-ng suite. You'll find it on the BackTrack3 install. You basically set up a virtual interface (atX) which is run on a rt73 based wireless usb stick. I simply connect to the legitimate network with my airport on my macbook, boot into BT3 with VMware, and tunnel my airbase access point between the two. This allows you to run ettercap or wifizoo on anyone who connects to your access point. It gets better, with my other stick I de-authenticate all connected clients and when they reconnect they connect to me by default due to their probes. This is a pretty stealthy hack and I'd be willing to post my script if anyone needs it. I just wanted to share my recent experience with airbase-ng and a big shoutout to jeroenimo for helping me out. Airbase-ng ps my hardware is the asus WL-167G and dwl-122G B1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
