Subject:Help with capture WEP decrypted data from single AP
Date:23:41:13 21/12/2005


I am in the process of teaching myself how to crack WEP keys and monitor 802.11 data. So far using Aircrack I have been able to crack my AP, now I want to be able to see if I can monitor the traffic between my AP and its clients. I was hoping that someone could help me with this task, perhaps by writing a short guide or outlning some steps.

What I have is

1. SSID and Mac address of AP
2. WEP key used.

I would like to configure kismet so that it monitors

a. Only my AP
b. Uses the WEP key to decode all trafffic
c. Stores the sniffed data to a pcap compatible file for parsing thru dsniff later.
d. ignores Beacon and other junk traffic from the AP so as to keep the filesize small.

I am currently using the Auditor linux system. Any help would be greatly appreciated and passed on to other newbies.
