Explains how to ethically hack a wifi wireless internet connection using free hacking software.

Wireless InternetHave a laptop, or a wireless internet card in your PC? Have you ever been in the position that where you lost your WEP / WPA key, and you interested on retrieving it back? Well with Aircrack you can.

Aircrack is a set of tools for auditing wireless networks. It consists of: airodump (an 802.11 packet capture program), aireplay (an 802.11 packet injection program), aircrack (static WEP and WPA-PSK cracking), and airdecap (decrypts WEP/WPA capture files).

I have used aircrack to try and hack my own wireless network and I happy to say I am as secure as I can get wirelessly. Again Aircrack comes with the four following pieces of software to help you secure your wireless internet connection

  • airodump (an 802.11 packet capture program)
  • aireplay (an 802.11 packet injection program)
  • aircrack (static WEP and WPA-PSK cracking)
  • airdecap (decrypts WEP/WPA capture files)

    Good luck without a Cayce AirPCap adapter (200 bucks!) or Linux with a Broadcom, Ralink, or Atheros chipset.

    Atheros Super G = the best. :D
    Also, the Linksys WUSB54g v3 is pretty good.
