    Hey folks,

    The software 'Elcomsoft Wireless Security Auditor' is supposed to be an easy to handle all-in-one WiFi Security/Cracking tool but I have to admit I still need help. My average IT knowledge is not really useful. :(

    After I've read the User's Guide I started the integrated network sniffer but an error appeared: 'AirPcap Adapter was not detected in your system'.
    I googled it and found out that an 'AirPcap Adapter' is a special tool for Network Sniffing. Well, for guys like me a very useful tool because the EWSA would do everything by itself. So I looked for one in over 8 different electronic shops in my city but none of them had one of them. They haven't even heard of it.


    So, without that adapter there is only one alternative described on the Elcomsoft Homepage:

    'Wireless sniffer included into Elcomsoft Wireless Security Auditor works with AirPcap Adapter only, and requires proper drivers installed. If you do not have a compatible adapter, the program requires a valid log of wireless communications in standard tcpdump format. The tcpdump format is supported by all commercial Wi-Fi sniffers. In order to audit your wireless network, at least one handshake packet must be present in the tcpdump file.'


    So, my question is how do i make/get a 'tcpdump' file of the WiFi I want to get in on Windows?

    Your best way would be to instal and use Kali linux, already patched kernel for best performances and already installed various tools for pen testing and security researchers. You will need to buy wifi card with dual mode (you need Monitor mode enabled to make it to work), I have bought Alpha AWUS036H, and many people is buying that model because is strong and cheap and doing a job well.
    To get handshake you need to deauthenticate valid user and wait on him to connect again, if no valid user is around you will have to wait for him, only when valid user connect to wifi he is sending handshake. That handshake you can crack later, in linu and in windows with that software that you have bought. You need to go to basics, if nothing else look on youtube videos to get you started.

    if you are on windows use oxid.it - Cain & Abel for cracking wifi password with Wireshark for sniffing packet data, they work great.

    if you are really interested in the field give a try to Backtrack linux, all the tools are already installed in it and work like magic. although you will need to learn some terminals commands in order to be perfect.

    Backtrack is Kali now.

    I guess I'll try Kali Linux. Can I use it in Virtualbox with a second Wireless Adapter?
