Notes: Cracking WEP on the Windows command line with Aircrack-ng and AirPcap Tx

ARP injection in Windows using AirPcap Tx

Finally, I’ve had time to write down my notes on using aircrack-ng with the Airpcap Tx adapter in Windows. Before you read on, please be aware that this isn’t meant to be a guide or tutorial, it’s just my notes. Thanky 🙂

Basics

Start capturing:

Fake auth:

Start attack:

Deauth (if we need ARPs):

aireplay-ng –deauth 3 -a BSSIDMAC -c CLIENTMAC \\.\airpcap00

Start cracking:

Worked example:

Download

I’ve prepared a special release of the aircrack-ng tools originally prepared by CACE Technologies on the AirPcap CDROM. It replaces the new aireplay-ng.exe with an older one which, in my tests, appears to perform better.

OpenOffice Save As .doc by default

OpenOffice

To get OpenOffice to Save in Microsoft Word .doc format by default, follow these steps:

  • Tools > Options
  • Load/Save > General
  • In the bottom right of the window, look for “Always save as” and pick your poison 😉

I know that saving in a proprietary format over an open standard is bad practice, but sometimes in Business you need to maintain interoperability with the de facto standard; in this case: Microsoft Word.
