Cracking Secured (WEP/WPA) Wireless Networks with Backtrack!

I’ve always been asked, “is my Wireless Network secure?” and usually reply with “As long as you’re using WPA with a strong password”. However I wanted to test that out and do some penetration testing.

I looked on the supported devices section of a popular distribution called “BackTrack” that seems to have everything you require to penetrate 802.11 wireless access points.

I’ve picked up a NetGear WG111 and a Linksys WUSB54GC, I’ve yet to test either to see if they’re going to work. And in work I mean actually be able to inject packets, as that’s the main reasoning behind it.

I will be using this guide I stumbled upon online via Google search.
