vdub Posted May 8, 2012 Share Posted May 8, 2012 I have a problem. I setup a wrt54g router running ddwrt in my shop for pen testing. The ssid is Linksys and its using wpa. I am using airodump-ng and I am having a hard time capturing a handshake. I finally got it after connecting my phone to the access point but it took over 10 attempts to do it. I have my channel set to the same as the access point and everything else looks good. When I first started I accidentally used my normal wpa2 password and it failed to authenticate but airodump-ng claimed to have gotten that handshake. I restarted it and tried again and that’s when it took over 10 tries to get another. I tried with my phone and my wife's notebook. The wpa password on the access point is just "password". I want to play with piping john in to airocrack-ng. However, if this was a real world test and I was deauthing to get the handshake then it would take forever. Is there anything I might be doing wrong. Here is what I am doing. ## change channel iwconfig wlan0 channel 6 ## then airmon-ng airmon-ng start wlan0 6 ## now I have to bring the adapter down or it doesn't work ifconfig wlan0 down ## Then start airodump-ng airodump-ng wlan0 -c 6 --bssid xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx -w ./Linksys.0 The adapter is not configured on the system. This adapter is the alfa I use on my netbook and I have it connected to my desktop just for this purpose. I have dual Ethernet adapters and have no intention on making wlan0 work as an actual connection. Any tips would be appreciated. I read somewhere that you can force wpa in airodump but I could not figure out how. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
