cool beans! It's just I'm afraid now people will be hacking each other wireless networks and taking personal data like credit cards and such...

That is why I use a 62 character key (AES) and it is not in any dictionary.
TACACS+ server for SOHO networks? I guess we will have to really soon.

looks like crossfire works at least, considering that the 4870x2 got twice the performance of the 4870. (according to their chart) though, this program isn't new, i read about it back in october if im not mistaken.

You can already crack WPA/WPA2 extremely easily. This just cuts down on the time needed to do so.

Don´t worry, be happy.
You can use a random password and store it in a pendrive, is very easy.

You can use this page to generate it:

With a random pass nobody can crack you Wifi.

Use de calculator 105^63/pass per sec. There are a lot of years.

What if you wireless router doesn't broadcast the SSID? Does that make things more secure?

Micyia001, the basic answer is yes, it would be more secure. It would be like giving a folder the hidden attribute. Normally people wouldn't see it, but if they turned on "view hidden files" then they could. Likewise, if someone was looking around with a spectrum analyzer (which aren't terribly expensive if you're into war-driving) and launch kismet, etc. then it didn't matter if you turned off broadcasting.

In the real world, war-drivers or even people trying to cause trouble would just move on to easier targets. If it's a neighbor with some time, or someone specifically targeting a person, then turning off broadcasting wouldn't matter.

Elcomsoft Wireless Auditor is great software. Well for Dictionary Brute Forcing. I could seem to setup a true Brute Force trying every combination. eg aaa, aab, aac. I know this takes alot longer but alot more people are learning no to use dictionary words. Any ideas how to achieve this???
