Hacking WEP is as easy as eating a piece of banana cream pie with chopsticks (it’s easier than it sounds). There are multiple methods of doing such, especially depending on who makes your wireless card (Atheros chipsets allow for additional, faster methods, as well as some other chipsets). The most common way, which is done via a Backtrack live disk or USB in conjunction with Aircrack, can be seen step-by-step in the following video.
Do not misuse this information by the way. It’s for auditing your home’s wireless security, as well as for general knowledge. Keep in mind you should not be using WEP. Use WPA or WPA2 (preferable). There are some cases where people don’t have a choice in the matter though, such as if they want to connect to the internet using their Nintendo DS…which only supports WEP for some dumb reason. Be safe!
