    So I am trying for educational purposes to crack a WEP key on my own wifi network.
    I have downloaded and installed KisMAC, but when I try and run a scan with My Airport in passive mode, all channels selected, nothing happens.

    Here is my Airport Card

    Here is the setup in Preferences for Drivers

    But when I go to scan networks, nothing happens. I have tried researching this, and some people are saying oh you need to complile this, or get the trunk of that. My brain goes :eek:

    Hoping someone had some tips for me, thanks.

    If you are confused by compiling some stuff yourself then this is not for you...

    It's not that it blows my mind, just that I would like some individual help on this specific scenario.
    Downloading Xcode now, forgot to throw it back on here after the new HD.

    Not sure this type of posting is allowed on the forum.

    Just a guess, but it probably will be viewed as hacking. Because it is. Who's to say that you won't go into some other guys, or company's wifi with that knowledge now?

    This was probably the wrong forum to post this in then.
    I have registered and posted over in the Kismac forums now, whatever I learn I will update here for others users to glean.

    Thanks.

    You have to use active mode, airport internal card sucks donkey nuts so you won't be doing much cracking with it alone, you'll need a USB wifi card that supports injection and such because airport doesn't. You can try to collect IVs from your network but in order to crack WEP you'll need a lot, to collect a lot of them without injection you'll be there for a week or so.

    ramphex is correct. If you really care, just check out their compatible hardware list. Go to Kismac forum's if you need further help. MR is not pro-wep cracking.

    Hm I don't understand why when I try it out in active everything looks like this?
