 Hi guys,

I'm giving my first InfoSec presentation on Thursday and wanted to show
the insecurity of WEP by hacking the key of my own router and then
showing the traffic of another computer on the wireless network.
The first part is covered, but I fail getting airtun-ng to run (although
it ran a couple of days ago). I do a modprobe airtun and then run
aitun-ng -a [AP mac] -w [wep key] mon0.
mon0 is created using airmon-ng on my Alfa card. The aitrun-ng command
tells me the at0 interface is created, but does not return to the
command prompt. Wireshark or iwconfig do not see the interface.

I'm also trying to get NetworkMiner 0.92 to sniff wep encrypted traffic
on Windows, but it only lists my own traffic, nothing from other
machines. I use the WinPCap driver from WireShark.

Anybody got any help/ideas?

I can't help with the problems but can I suggest you take a canned
pcap file that you know you can crack the WEP key on just in case.
I've done various WEP cracking demos and sometimes you get the key in
seconds and some times sods law kicks in and it takes ages, too long
to have a quiet pause during a demo.
