Best portable distro for wifi penetration


So my neighbor is affraid someone will hack their wifi WPA/WPA2... I am using her wifi (she is my aunt so..) and i want to test it is it true.. So i need portable live cd/usb hacking distro for penetrating wifi and Rat attacks. She is afraid somone could use their web cam and film her.. I said "i will test it" and now i am thinking what to do
Kali linux is bad idea(limitation is 3.72gb size usb) and is running on VM or live cd with 1.7GHz core 2 duo laptop.. More lightweight more better

My aunt thinks someone other than us is using wifi.. Other neighbors use only windows and wifi cracking with windows is difficult thing(my opinion)
So i need RAT and Wifi attack usb portable linux distro.. Under 3.7GB

I won't use this on illegal purpose.. Because my friends already say i am hacker because i use puppy, slax and Lubuntu 14.04 linux.
And my friends use windows.. As usual windows vs linux..linux have better advantage than Win

"my neighbor is affraid someone will hack their wifi WPA/WPA2"

Then you need to take steps to harden it before you test it. You know you can access it already. There is no need to proceed yet to testing.

That sort of depends on how he hacked it. If he got her to give him the password, or physically got to the router and reset it, that doesn't say much about the wireless security. Hard to make a guess without knowing more.

check out this link: https://www.kali.org/downloads/

From the creators of BackTrack comes Kali linux, the most advanced and versatile
penetration testing platform ever created. We have a set of amazing features lined up in
our security distribution geared at streamlining the penetration testing experience.

The most obvious questions:

Is the wifi password the default password that came with the router or is it set to something reasonably safe? (I.e. a password that can not be found in a dictionary, contains numbers, upper case, lower case and special characters and is not too short (> 15-20 characters)?

Is the router's firmware up to date?

Are you enforcing WPA2 authentication?

I'd say this is the absolute minimum. You might want to add MAC filtering, but the most common opinion seems to be that this adds too much inconvenience for too little security, since MAC addresses can be spoofed easily.

As far as your aunt's concern about others using her wifi is concerned: Most routers allow you to see a list of active dhcp leases. That way you can check if there are any devices that should not be there. In case of doubt putting the mac address into a search engine sometimes helps because it gives you the manufacturer of the device... which sometimes helps to identify it.

you could install arch linux and get just the packages you need. if they're not in the aur they'd definitely be in the blackarch repos.
