    My dad is all "I am going to change the password on the wireless so you stop spending so much time on your computer!"

    LOL So lets see if that stops me? [​IMG]

    from what ive heard, it all depends on ur chipset uve got and what operating system you have. From my brief reading ive read that its kinda hard on windows.

    If you know the router pass, change that, and he won't be able to [​IMG]

    And then set things up to redirect him to a fake page where he thinks he is changing the password but he isn't

    That part would be harder, but possible, if you set up a host file 'C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\host' to redirect the router page to a locally hosted Apache server.

    WAT?

    I never understood what "apache" is but I have always known about it.

    Anyway the password cracker sounds easier.

    Apache is a webserver. Pretty much like the one you're on right now looking at this. [​IMG]
    I say my plan would be easier as password crackers can sometimes take a while

    Unless hes using WEP
    Then its easy.

    kismet and aircrack under Linux.

    Possibly aircrack has been replaced with something newer - ain't got a clue.

    Cracks WEP, but not WPA/WPA2.

    you need to have a network card which supports monitor mode
    and a lot do not, the one's that do are expensive

    I think they were just showing its possible to do it with GPU's, proof of concept
    they havnt released anything though besides fakes that are really just dictionary based attacks

    If none of those works, a really long ehternet cable works.

    Backtrack, boots off a cd. you could crack with that but that is linux... N u might need ndiswrapper to get your wireless drivers on linux...

    You'd still need a card that supports monitor mode.
    Just go on one of your networked computers, access the router page, and change the wireless password yourself.
    Most likely, your father didn't change the admin-page password.

    If he did there is a reset button on the router, just push it (with a pen if the button is hard to reach) for like 10seconds. But if there are other computers using wifi.
