  1. is it necessary to be connected to the Internet during the attack?

      • Tried all of the above, still not working for me. It simply cannot associate the bssid with network. Could it happen due to the networks parameters? (wps y/n, security, etc)

    • How are we supposed to know the adapter which we are trying to find the password of? How would we know this in the real world?

      Post a Reply
      • You wouldn’t, but you can look up the first 6 digits of the MAC address (BSSID) and find the manufacturer, which will tell you what you need to know. For example, when following this guide to crack my own wireless router, the first six digits of my BSSID is 94:10:3E – google MAC address look up, any one of them should do, and it’ll tell you the 94103E prefix is assigned to Belkin International – my router is a Belkin.

    • What should i do if there isn’t wlan0 if i write ifconfig?

      • If you’re using a laptop and using a Virtual Machine i.e: Virtual Box, it wont work because a VM doesnt use your laptops wifi, youll have to buy a usb wifi adapter to be able to do it.

    • OH, I GET IT, ALL T HIS DOES IS TRY TO ACTIVATE THE wps BUTTON TO CONNECT THAN ACCESS THE ADMIN FOR PASSWORD, SMART BUT HIGHLY UNLIKELY

      • exactly. your power has to be above 50 for this to work which means it is close, maybe a next door neighbor at best

  9. in Wifite how to initiate the attack and using reaver it says pin from the client not found.. pls help dude.

    Post a Reply
  10. this only works for wps enabled router with no AP locks and it would probably take 4-10 hours to get the password

    • If “ifconfig” is not working then you can use “ip addr show” or “ip a”.
