That will put capped ivs into your /home/$USER directory; or the /root directory; depending on configuration.

NOTE: This will need to be run until approx. 20,000 are caught...

Yeah, its working but its only at 26...seems like its gonna take forever. Isnt there a way I can like "inject" or something. Like hit my router and get stuff back.

Yes, but your current configuration will probably not support packet injection. The suite even said so.

BCM4318's do support this, however a workaround will be required,

Quick Google search netted this:
http://forum.aircrack-ng.org/index.p...c&topic=2845.0
Google is always helpful. This was found with the query "bcm4318 packet injection".

ok, ill just wait it out for now. we'll see what happens.

Once I figure this out and can start using my wireless. Im gonna delete all this and start over with a fresh install of XP but this time I want to create a partition for Linux. I can do all this stuff with that ubuntu right? like its all the same stuff?

THere is a tutorial on this website for partitioning but it is seriously in greek.

ALSO: You know of any like super basic linux links that will explain all this stuff in 5 year old terms?

Why don't you reset the router to the factory settings and then look for the manual?

My advice would be to stop messing about with BackTrack. Like somebody said, it's a specialised distro. Go out and look for Linux magazines, they give away distros on DVDs. Get one with Mint or Ubuntu preferably, or anything. Re-install your XP, giving it the space you want, then install the linux distro.

I was so impressed by how I was able to accomplish my goals using linux that I went ahead and reformatted my HD, partitioned it and installed ubuntu on one half.

HOwever, being that I am a windows user and have been since the dawn of my computer life, it is a little frustrating starting from scratch.

I have read a few things here and there but am nowhere near achieving a level of understanding that I have with windows.

But Im willing to try.

What are the advantages to using linux in the first place? I mean, why does the computing world favor this type of OS so much?

I can't even figure out how to get my hardware working with linux yet.
