It has already been cracked. 60 seconds according to this.Don't bother with MAC address filtering, it takes seconds to break.
WPA2-AES is extremely secure. You MUST use as long and as complicated key as you can muster. uppercase, lowercase, numbers & special characters... Up to 64 ASCII characters long. You should also change the key at regular intervals.

Thought wifi was free @ starbucks. So no need.Do you really think anyone with the knowledge to do so would bother to hack an individuals wireless home network?
If an individual was that way inclined, they'd go and sit outside Starbucks and sniff all the packets flying around there from the business users happily using their wireless network.
If you read it, it's just a brute force attack, hence me saying to use random letters, numbers, etc... This isn't a vulnerability in the technology, it's a problem with the squidgy bit that makes it work!It has already been cracked. 60 seconds according to this.
I agree, just pointing out it can be done. How many home users will use a complex key.If you read it, it's just a brute force attack, hence me saying to use random letters, numbers, etc... This isn't a vulnerability in the technology, it's a problem with the squidgy bit that makes it work!
If you know what you're doing you never need to pay for public wireless, just wait for somebody else to pay and then spoof their connection But that's completely illegal and shouldn't be done.
Business users really should be using VPN, and anybody using public wifi should be using HTTPS. ie, for hotmail, hit the "sign in using enhanced security" button! :smthumbup
Doesn't matter how many tools you send me links to, they all basically exploit weak keys. Pick a weak key and you deserve to get hacked, simple. Pick a strong key and you're as secure as anything :smthumbupI agree, just pointing out it can be done. How many home users will use a complex key.
worth a look
Omg, have I wandered onto a CIA forum lol, i doubt many people would want to hack into an average home network. Standard network security and maybe mac filtering should be sufficient.
WPA's pretty good and accompanied by mac filtering if the router supports it:smthumbup
Wrong.i doubt many people would want to hack into an average home network.
Again, that's really quite wrong. Maybe a box coming directly from (and preconfigured by) your ISP is, but if you buy a router off the shelf in Maplin or whatever, they're not secure by default.Most wireless connections "out of the box" have security. We use sky and i can remember our box being shipped with WPA pre-configured.
I dont find many connections these days that dont, though i'm sure if they really want to get into your network "home network" then they probably will.
