Dear members, finally, we decided to refresh our theme. Decision was brought based on multiple factors, primarily because of technical needs as old one is not compatible with a new platform version, but also because you all asked for a darker theme.
Here you go!

WEP Hacking with CommView

Recommended Posts

Step 1: Setting Up CommView for Wi-Fi

Download the zip file of CommView for Wi-Fi from the website. Extract the file and run setup.exe to install CommView for Wi-Fi. When CommView opens for the first time it has a driver installation guide. Follow the prompts to install the driver for your wireless card.

Run CommView for Wi-Fi.

Click the play icon on the top left of the application window.

Start scanning for wireless networks.

CommView now starts scanning for wireless networks channel by channel. After a few minutes you will have a long list of wireless networks with their security type and signal. Now it is time to choose your target network

>Step 2: Selecting the Target Network and Capturing Packets

A few things to keep in mind before choosing the target wireless network

This tutorial is only for WEP encrypted networks.

So make sure you select a network with WEP next to its name

Choose a network with the highest signal.

Each network will have its details in the right column.

Make sure the WEP network you are choosing has the least the least dB (decibel) value.

Once you have chosen your target network,select it and click Capture to start capturing packets from the desired channel.

Now you might notice that packets are being captured from all the networks in the particular channel. To capture packets only from the desired network follow the given steps.

Right click the desired network and click on copy MAC Address.

Switch to the Rules tab on the top.

On the left hand side choose MAC Addresses

Enable MAC Address rules

For 'Action' select 'capture' and for 'Add record' select 'both'.

Now paste the mac address copied earlier in the box below.

We need to capture only data packets for cracking. Hence select D on the bar at the top of the window and deselect M (Management packets) and C (Control packets).

Now you have to save the packets so that they can be cracked later. To do this-

Go to the logging tab on top and enable auto saving.

Set Maximum Directory Size to 2000

Set Average Log File Size to 20.

>Step 3: Waiting..

Now the boring part- WAITING!

NOTE: The amount of time taken to capture enough data packets depends on the signal and the networks usage. The minimum number of packets you should capture should be 100,000 for a decent signal.

After you think you have enough packets (at least 100,000 packets)

Go to the log tab and click on concatenate logs.

Select all the logs that have been saved.

Do not close CommView for Wi-Fi

Now navigate to the folder where the concatenated logs have been saved

Open the log file

Select File- Export -Wire shark tcpdump format and choose any suitable destination.

This will save the logs with a .cap extension to that location

>Step 4:Now the Interesting Part...CRACKING!!

Download Aircrack-ng and extract the zip file.

Open the folder and navigate to 'bin'.

Run Aircrack-ng GUI

Choose WEP

Open your .cap file that you had saved earlier.

Click Launch.

In the command prompt type in the index number of your target wireless network.

Wait for a while .If everything goes fine the wireless key will be shown.

You may also receive a request to try with more packets. In this case wait until more packets have been captured and repeat the steps to be performed after capturing packets


Check if your wireless card is compatible :http://www.tamos.com/download/main/ca.php

I tried this method on my Asus Aspire One with windows xp.

When i try to open Aircrack-ng GUI.exe it gives me an error with the title "Aircrack-ng GUI.exe - Application Error" saying "The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000135).Click on OK to terminate the application".

Tried to run it in Compatibility mode and as Administrator and it gives me the same error. Tried with different Aircracks downloaded from google and the same thing happens.

What can i do?





The GUI requires .NET Framework 2.0 to run (.NET Frameworks 1.0/1.1 are not able to run this executable, 2.0 or better MUST be installed).





Tried this method but i didn't managed to make it work. I had over 100.000 packets saved with Commview (got them in over 2 hours of waiting from my router usit WEP security) and when i uploaded them to Aircrack-ng GUI.exe and inserted the index it said that i had 0 packets and advised me to try with 5000.

I think it's just a waste of time and that it doesn't work at all. :dodgy:
