I have done a bit of searching, but I am still basically clueless, so I am hoping someone can give me a good place to start with all this.
I have an old PowerBook G4 that I would like to use as a 'dummy' computer for learning wireless penetration (WEP/WPA attacks) more effectively. I had been using a wireless router, but I gave it away
I can use Mac OS X to share an ethernet connection over wifi, but this is _very_ un-configurable. You get two options only, WEP and a key-length.
So, I would like to install someway to make this wireless connection more configurable. I am sure I can do that w/linux, I just don't know how yet
. So, are there any terms for this general technique (net sharing, eth to wifi, etc?) and could anyone provide some good starter links? Also, any info on setting up varying wifi networks in linux would be appreciated.
Thanks a bunch in advance!
