Can anyone tell me a way to do WEP hacking (legal, of course) (on my own wireless connection, for the purposes of this question) with Wireshark or similar programs on an Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6205? (Laptop is Acer Aspire 5750-6866.) According to the programs, I cannot accomplish this (monitor mode) but seeing as it is a fairly recent wireless card (should be able to support this) are there any cracked drivers available or does anyone have the knowledge to make one?
If you don't mind the time you need to install WinPCAP from Here and also wireshark from Here. Actually Wireshark should install winpcap anyway and should let you sniff the wireless air around you with that card.
You could also try Netmon: Here
Ok, the problem was that nowhere in Wireshark's documentation in the software center does it state that it has to be run as root, and it doesn't ask to be run as root by default. So when it starts up, unless you're logged in as root (which would be unsafe), it won't display any adapters, even ethernet or loopback.
NOTE TO LINUX WIRESHARK USERS: ALWAYS RUN
