THESHade Posted October 28, 2011 Share Posted October 28, 2011 #######Spoiler Alert, Noob inside######## So today I received my Alfa AWUS036NH card. I bought this one cause I was recommended AWUS036H one but that supports only 802.11b/g and my network is on n and I want to test and and teach myself on it. I searched the forum for some feedback and I found that it works so I ordered it. so my question is, why does airmon supports only bg? Does that mean I won`t be able to monitor my N-network and traffic on it? or does that mean that I will use a different tool? Would wireshark do the job? I am still only at the beginning of my 'education; on WiFi sec . (I wanted to ask diff. question about drivers but I realized I prob. had only bad configuration of VM) Also, does anyone know a good virtual access point/router that I can use to train and I can set it up with whatever encryption and settings I want??? I don't have any hardware one available and I am unable to change the one I am using to connect to the WAN and I have 2 laptops so I could still use one a s a victim PC'.Would Vyatta do the job or it doesn't serve like that? I try to do a SecurityTube Mega-primer and I can`t really continue w/o an AP. Or if I want to buy one, what should I get if I want to connect it to my 1st router and then I would want to use my 2nd AP as a lab so I can set up different encryption, etc. on it without having to change any settings (or at least not the security ones) at my 1st router. I thought I should get AP/router that supports DD-WRT but I read that it needs to be set to a same encryption ( so if I ahve WPA2 I will ahve to set the AP to WPA2 as well) Is there actually a way for me to do what I want to do?
