Today we’re continuing our discussion on wireless management frames with probe requests and responses.
Today we’ll be setting up an environment which will allow us to easily disect a beacon frame, as well as the other three types of management frames; probes, authentication and association. As you know we’ve covered the 3 types of wireless frames; management, control and data. Last week we went over one of the 4 types of management frames — the beacon.
Today we’re going over your top 5 tips, questions and software picks including performance boosters, 3d desktops and disk space analyzers for Windows.
Here in the US there are are 4 major carries and all of them use 3g and 4g as marketing speak for speed, but I am here to tell you it not all marketing at all. First lets cover what the G really stands for. Itâ€™s generation, so 3G is really the third generation of wireless cell technology. So, when Version says they have the largest 3g network they really mean they started building their network later than, say A&TT, who really started at 2G. So in the case of Verizon, 3G could be slower than AT&T’s 2G network because generation does not directly correlate with speed. But as we all know tech does have a tendency to get faster over time. The generational spec really dictates how the tech of a given generation uses it’s spectrum to push packets.

Today as we continue on our WPA cracking adventure we’ll learn some more fundamentals of these ubiquitous wireless protocols including some 802.11 history, the WiFi Alliance and the lettered protocols B, A and G.
Darren answers the top 10 questions including calculating brute force times with a little bash calculator action, changing mac addresses the other way, loading wifi drivers in Linux and a lot more.
This time on the show we’re cracking down on my Windows PC, optimizing it for fastest performance.
Continuing the fundamentals series we’re going over more then you ever needed to know about MAC addresses, OUIs and Spoofing.
I’ve done a few Bootable USB’s before but I’ve never tried out a Multiboot Installer, so today I decided to try something new.Â YUMI (aka Your Universal Multiboot Installer) is available at pendrivelinux.com. This tool can be used to create a Multibootable USB Flash Drive containing multiple operating systems, antivirus utilities, disc cloning, diagnostic tools, and more.
We’re getting promiscuous, with wireless cards! As part of our foundation series of HakTips Darren covers the fundamentals of wireless packet sniffing with a practical approach in BackTrack Linux using the Aircrack-ng suite.
Virtual Desktops are a super easy way to save some money and keep yourself organized. While many operating systems like OS X and Linux support Virtual Desktops out of the box, Windows does not. Shannon covers three free programs to add this functionality and picks her favorite.
This time on the show we’re getting a little BASH happy with Standard Streams and pipelines as we break the encryption on a WPA protected wireless access point using John the Ripper and Aircrack-ng.
In this Haktip Darren shows how to detecting ARP Cache Poison Attacks in Windows and Linux using XARP
