10 minutes to hack WEP. The force is weak within your special skills. People with literally no networking skills can hack WEP is less. They have learned how to use Google and read. 10 minutes if you include downloading and burning Backtrack Live CD.
Congratulations on completely failing to understand the difference between being able to use a WEP network and being able to completely take over a WEP network, including all nodes within the network - all while ensuring that there is no forensic trail by which you can be tracked back to.

Oh wait, you think you're anon when you just packet inject? Sucks to be you.

You said you could 'get in' not hack, and now you seem to be the one that sucked their panties up their opinion hole. Get over yourself dude, no one is impressed.

Tell us again how <<<<<<POWERFUL>>>>>>> your card is, some many have missed being impressed. Running it through a linear amp
What about your car, how 'powerful' is your Prius

No apartment around here...

You are absolutely correct. I forgot that I was talking to some on the low end of the techie chain who never think about the CMA aspect of doing an action such as popping into someone else's network without permission and thus should have been more clear on what the best practices are as opposed to being a candidate for World's Dumbest Criminals.

So, I 'pop' your wireless, and you happen to be watching an capture my MAC address. Tell me ol' not so wise one, what the hell you going to do with that? You can now determine what brand of wireless card (it's an Intel ) I have by the first 24 bits of the MAC, or if you have MAC filtering enabled, you have captured one of YOUR own MAC addresses that I spoofed.

Funny your moniker is the name of a failed Jedi that committed suicide

I missed where you explained how <<<<<<<<<<<<powerful>>>>>>>>>> you wireless card is, or did I

He wouldn't be able to capture your MAC, because you would have spoofed it. Get with it man.

Get with it man, read the whole damn statement before you decide what I said or understand, and only if it were necessary due to MAC filtering. It is an unnecessary step if MAC filtering isn't implemented, now is it

People's inability to read beyond the first sentence is amazing.

Touche, let's blame it on it being 1AM and Glenlivet 18 at the time.

Part of my job (when I deem to take that sort of a contract) is tracking down crackers. If you think the MAC address is the only thing utilized to figure these sorts of things out, well...you largely deserve what you get.

BTW, the "failed Jedi" was named Xanatos, not Xanathos. I never even read the books, and even I know this.

Now run along and go back to cleaning up viruses from Luddite rigs while thinking that qualifies you to be a techie.

If I do out of state temp jobs and live temporarily in an Apt sometimes I can't sign up for my own internet so then I have to leech on other people's wifi. Or go to a bookstore.
