    Hello. I hve a WEP encrypted WiFi network with a Linksys WRT54G Router. My computers are all WinXP SP2 machines. I was able to crack my wep in 1 second with 1.1million caps packets. I am pretty sure someone is stealing my bandwith. I frequently change my WEP key and have changed my SSID and have even tried not broadcasting it. I am aware of other options such as WPA and MAC Filtering, etc. What I want, is a way to see who exactly is using my bandwith. What are my options? Is there a program that can monitor what's going on with each workstation? Is there a program to use to view captured network traffic that I allready have saved? I GUI style program or viewer? I'm just throwing around ideas...

    thanks :)

    I have had NetStumber for years. I recently downloaded Aircrack with t he airodump and airdecap suite for Win32. It works great. I think that's what someone is using on me. Or something similar at least. I just downloaded Etherreal and Airsnare and they look cool, but are a little confusing. I'm still learning and want to figure it all out. Objective number one is to create the most secure wireless network I can. To do so, I must learn how to crack them..

    There was a bug in kernel.The NEW version,1.2,has been fixed.The Orinoco Card is one of the most supported in Linux,although it's not the most sensitive nor has longest range it's not a bad one to have for Linux.This version of Troppix has a lightweight desktop(IceWM) for speed and has Java,Abiword AND Open Office.He's fixed a lot of things and added a bunch of stuff.

    I'd like something that auto detects and sets up my Orinoco Gold card for me and comes with Aircrack/Airodump/etc...

    Am I dreaming?

    There are a few like that.

    Whax

    Auditor

    Insert

    Helix is one you really should try.I'm not sure if it has all the tools but it has a bunch of forensic tools and can run anti virus and other tool on a Windows machine from the CD drive.


    http://www.e-fense.com/helix/

    It's not easy to install to hard drive.It has Knoppix older installer but doesn't always work.Fails more than works I think.you can check the package list.


    The next version of Whax is suppose to be merged with Auditor and I don't know what it's going to be called.

    The CD version of Knoppix has a lot of tools and hardware drivers.Check the list at Helix it's a good one.It hasn't been updated in aa few months but it runs well.

    Oh that last version of Kanotix I listed gives almost a straight Debian system when on hard drive now.I installed Troppix and downloaded Debian packages with no problems.You can add to Troppix ANY Linux package that you want,Debian has them all.I did this after a hard drive install.I haven't tried to add anything to Kanotix and this didn't always work in the past.

    Mepis is suppose to be about 100% Debian compatible now but I've only run it to look at it.
