inSSIDer is an award-winning free Wi-Fi network scanner for Windows Vista and Windows XP. Because NetStumbler doesn’t work well with Vista and 64-bit XP, an open-source Wi-Fi network scanner was designed and built for the current generation of Windows operating systems.

What’s Unique about inSSIDer?

  • Use Windows Vista and Windows XP 64-bit.
  • Uses the Native Wi-Fi API.
  • Group by Mac Address, SSID, Channel, RSSI and “Time Last Seen.”
  • Compatible with most GPS devices (NMEA v2.3 and higher).

It’s been known for a while that WEP is easily cracked. Today I will show you just how easy it is and how to test your network’s security yourself. Since I usually find that there’s generally too much explanation involved in these tutorials, I will try to keep it simple.

You Will Require :

A Wireless Router with WEP encryption
A Wireless Card Capable of Injection ( Atheros Cards are Preferred)
A Copy of BackTrack Linux
A USB Drive (2GB or larger)

Steps To Follow :

First, you need BackTrack on a USB drive. Plug your USB drive into your computer and format it with FAT32.
