Question Have you cracked WEP?


Im looking for someone who can supply me with proof that WEP can be cracked.

Im after someone with Airsnort dumps, Kismet dumps , WEP crack or Ethereal dumps that show WEP cracked.

I've spent many days trying to crack my wireless network in my lab, but im having no luck.

Im studying "Security Issues Associated with Wireless LANs"

Please can someone help??

This would be much more appropriate in the Security section (or even the Wireless section).

Additionally, solicitations for cracking tools are generally frowned upon pretty heavily.

I am not going to get into it to deep but I will say that i have seen routers of both the wireless, and none-wireless cracked before to allow people to run man-in-the-middle attacks. We discussed this in great length and did it on some sample networks in a class I took on information security. In general I found it was the router that got hacked and not the WEP system itself, but once you are given open access to play on the router WEP isn't going to really protect anything... since the keys are available at that point...
