ok lets me give some info running backtrack 4 off a usb drive.

everything works perfectly..

using cowpatty 4.6

and aircrack-ng

trying to crack wpa with cowpatty my just for the trill of it :)

got the rainbow table offensive security like you guys said.....

when i get to the part of:

cowpatty -r me-01.cap -d /mnt/sdd/belking54.wpa -s belkin_N_Wireless_118965

i get the cowpatty could not stat hashfile. check path

i have tried the following paths

/mnt/media/cdrom0/belkin54.wpa

/mnt/media/cdrom/belkin54.wpa

/mnt/sdd/belking54.wpa

the path to the file is /cdrom/belkin54.wpa

Well the error says your path is wrong, so your path is wrong :P.

Try /media/cdrom0/<rainbow>

Gerix is like the noob way to use aircrack. I encourage people to learn how to use aircrack-ng so if Gerix does not work they can use aircrack manually. Same with cowpatty. Maybe Gerix isn't using the best method and how can you know the difference if you do not understand how the programs it calls work?

just find where your files are stored and cd into the drive find files and list accordingly example if usb in should be in storage:/media so cd /media/ and what ever

your usb or ssd name is so then you do cd /media/usb/ then ls to see files and then list in cowpatty /media/usb/iwishiknewhowtocrackwpa.txt lol:)

and its that easy

as mr protocol says your path is wrong -become one with your path

But when Gerix is started from terminal it shows the commands use. Its an easy way for starters to learn hacking wifi. And if for some reason your commands won't work, then you can try gerix to see if you had problems with commands, or in something else...
