5 Steps Wifi Hacking – Cracking WPA2 Password

5 Steps Wifi Hacking – Cracking WPA2 Password


After the long holiday, first I want to say Merry Christmas and Happy new year 2014 to you. Today we will learn about 5 Steps Wifi Hacking – Cracking WPA2 Password. A lot of readers send many request regarding how to crack wireless WPA2 password in our request tutorial page.

According to Wikipedia :

Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) and Wi-Fi Protected Access II (WPA2) are two security protocols and security certification programs developed by the Wi-Fi Alliance to secure wireless computer networks. The Alliance defined these in response to serious weaknesses researchers had found in the previous system, WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy)

A flaw in a feature added to Wi-Fi, called Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS), allows WPA and WPA2 security to be bypassed and effectively broken in many situations. Many access point they have a Wifi Protected Setup enabled by default (even after we hard reset the access point).


1. Wireless card (support promiscuous mode)

In this tutorial I use ALFA AWUS036H from Amazon.

5 Steps Wifi Hacking - Cracking WPA2 Password

2. Access point with WPA2 and WPS enables

5 Steps Wifi Hacking – Cracking WPA2 Password:

1. Open our terminal (CTRL+ALT+T) and type airmon-ng (view tips and tricks how to create keyboard shortcut on kali linux)

5 Steps Wifi Hacking - Cracking WPA2 Password

this command will lists our wireless card that attached with our system.

2. The next step we need to stop our wireless monitor mode by running airmon-ng stop wlan0

5 Steps Wifi Hacking - Cracking WPA2 Password

3. Now we ready to capture the wireless traffic around us. By running airodump-ng wlan0 our wireless interface will start capturing the data.

5 Steps Wifi Hacking - Cracking WPA2 Password

From the picture above, we can see many available access point with all the information. In the green box is our victim access point which is my own access point πŸ™‚


BSSID (Basic Service Set Identification): the MAC address of access point

PWR: Signal level reported by the card.

Beacons: Number of announcements packets sent by the AP

#Data: Number of captured data packets (if WEP, unique IV count), including data broadcast packets.

#/s: Number of data packets per second measure over the last 10 seconds.

CH: Channel number (taken from beacon packets).

MB: Maximum speed supported by the AP. If MB = 11, it's 802.11b, if MB = 22 it's 802.11b+ and higher rates are 802.11g.

ENC: Encryption algorithm in use.

CIPHER: The cipher detected. TKIP is typically used with WPA and CCMP is typically used with WPA2.

AUTH: The authentication protocol used.

ESSID: Shows the wireless network name. The so-called “SSID”, which can be empty if SSID hiding is activated.

4. From the step 3 above, we can find access point with encryption algorithm WPA2 and note the AP channel number. Now we will find out whether target AP has WPS enabled or not.

wash -i wlan0 -c 8 -C -s

5 Steps Wifi Hacking - Cracking WPA2 Password

if the WPS Locked status is No, then we ready to crack and move to step 5.

5. The last step is cracking the WPA2 password using reaver.

reaver -i <your_interface> -b <wi-fi victim MAC address> –fail-wait=360

Because we already get the information from step 3 above, so my command look like this:

reaver -i wlan0 -b E0:05:C5:5A:26:94 –fail-wait=360

5 Steps Wifi Hacking - Cracking WPA2 Password

it took about 5 hours to crack 19 characters WPA2 password (vishnuvalentino.com) from my Kali virtualBox, but it depend with our hardware and wireless card.


1. WPA and WPA2 security implemented without using the Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) feature are unaffected by the security vulnerability.

2. To prevent this attack, just turn off our WPS/QSS feature on our access point. See picture below (I only have the Chinese version πŸ˜› )

5 Steps Wifi Hacking - Cracking WPA2 Password

Notes: Only practice this tutorial on your own lab and your own device. Hacking can be a crime if you don't know where to put it.

      I dont think i really get what you mean but I’ll assume the i understand it…
      to do attack like this,you need a wireless card that support the type of attack that you are doing…example if you only have a Realtek PCI Family(dont think this is the right name) you cant even connect to the internet in Kali or Backtrack(experienced before)…

    • Yes if your wireless card can do promiscuous mode and not use a Virtual Machine

      • Anonymous

        And can inject packets.

  • Ten Ji

    In Step 4:
    If the WPS Locked status is enabled?

    • Nik

      I’m not sure. First they say that it has to have no WPS to be crackable and in the conclusions they state that those without wps are unaffected by this vulnerability

      • Tanuj Mittal

        only WEP and WPS are vulnerable. WPA and WPA2 cannot be cracked as far as I have tried.
        So if you disable WPS you are unaffected by the WPS vulnerability.

  • dreamlord

    its not the brand.. but chip inside the wirelesscard.. for example.. all vaio laptop come with atheros wireless chipset capable of injecting and receiving data packets.

    look for taiwan made chipsets.. theirs seem to offer more walue for money capability.. and do consider full installation of linux base OS.. not the live disk or run from virtual server.. penetration test (cracking in this case) might take days to complete sometimes.

    have some patience.

    Okay this worked well for me:
    Assuming your wireless card can go into monitor mode, leave monitor mode on. Disconnect from any wifi connections. In step 5, rather than using wlan0 for the interface use mon0 or whatever the name of your monitor is.
    Took me about 7 hours to crack my first pin/password.

      You have to use a usb wireless card since virtualbox and vmware won’t see your built-in wireless card as a wireless card. I recommend the Alfa AWUS036NHA USB adapter. You can pick one up for around $30 on Ebay or elsewhere and it supports packet injection and everything else you’ll need.

    • resirup

      It depends on many factors, distance from the AP, card chipset etc. I got WPS cracked within 15 hours with the speed 1pin/2secs on Alfa wifi card.

    Is it necessary to be ONLINE or our Internet connection ON – while attacking USING REAVER??
    With hope of good response.
    Thanking you

  • Aggrotek

    this thread is comical, what is so hard about installing kali on your computer? get rid of windows, its a waste of space..i actually like backbox more than kali, or even pure debian that i get to install on what i want, kali has a lot of redundant shit on it and new aircrack version is godawful (on kali 2.0)

  • I tried this too many times from different blogs and forums !! everytime i run;
    it lists ‘eth1’ Interface and never listed ‘wlan0’
    even if i run the command ‘airmon-ng start wlan0’ the machine returns that there are 5 processes are running , even if i try to ‘killall’ the processes they start again automatically,

    thats why i can’t run the command

    ‘airodump-ng wlan0’ or ‘airodump-ng eth1’ and keeps returning “make sure RFMON is enabled”

    +I am using Ubuntu as my operating system.
    can anyone help me with this issue

    i dont know what is it, please help. Thanks

    • TacoMeatDaGod

      fail should have –fail instead of -fail it just looks like that in the tutorial. its a typo but it should have 2 dashes in front.

  • TacoMeatDaGod

    the tutorial works well the only problem I’m having is that after about an hour of trying to crack the wifi access point I have set up it starts giving me some kind of warning over and over again (instead of [+] I get [-]. How do i fix this or why is it doing this. and is the wifu tutorial from offensive security still good to follow?
