WEP wifi hack windows 7

I never found instructions for windows 7 so after 2 days of testing came up with solutions that worked for me, follow these 10 steps and let me know if it works in the comments here.

Please purchase these instructions for only $4.99 (USD) here:

Watch the youtube video

You will need:

Data Gathering
1. Install commview: go to the commview folder in the package and double click setup, follow the install nothing special but once done it will fail saying it's not compatible with vista, ignore that.

2. take the crack file and place it in C:\program files\commviewwifi\ (or program files86 if you have 64 bit windows), it will say something about overwriting accept it.

3. Next right click the file cv.exe and click properties, compatabilities and select windows xp sp3 and run as administrator.

4. run it, now if you can click the play button your drivers work your lucky and can skip to number 7

5. otherwise you can close the program and right click computer, manage. go to Device Manager and find your wireless card that you are using (under network adapters) now right click and Update driver software...

6. Browse, Let me pick, Have Disk, Browse
Locate the pack included and go to Driver or NewDrivers (one should work for new as there's different versions [thanks logan perkins]), ok it and see if it finds your drivers
If successful open the CV.exe again and you should see the play button highlighted it worked and you can continue

7. click it and select Scan find the network you are targeting and begin the capture
Note make sure to check the logs to autosave and increase the size to 1000Mb and 100mb per log
They will be located under the program files directory of commview, LOGS

It can take 4-8 hours of gathering packets (might be less or more depending on how lucky/unlucky you are - took me around 20 hours because of weaker signal strength), once done you can continue to crack the data to gain the passphrase shared wep key:

8. Open the logs with commview, file, export, Tcpdump files (*.cap) save whatever name you like

9. Go to the pack, aircrack, Aircrack-ng GUI.exe, browse to the files, choose 64 (or leave at 128 if determined it) and launch

10. wait for the loading and press 1 and enter, the cracking begins and when done you should get the key.
Note to remove the colons and use just the numbers (maybe letter characters too?)
Report back and let us know in the comments below (note: the comments section was getting too big so I have moved the previous comments here: you can still comment here but I will move it there for organizational purposes.)


Thanks for visiting.

Hey I did every step as u specified but I couldn't crack the password.I managed to gget till the aircrack-GUI part n also launched it.But after I pressed 1,the following message is displayed-"Failed.Next try with 5000 IVs"...

This means you need more data, as mentioned it will sometimes require 10-20 hours of gathering data. depends on signal strength and noise in the area.

is it always 10-20 hours of gathering? or can it be less?

theborisedu said...

I think it really depends on the amount of noise in the area and the signal strength as well as the data being sent/received by the router. I tried using backtrack and I must say it's much faster as sending the data is forced. if you are able to get it try that. video on youtube has clear instructions.

The program has been installed, but I can not open it. it says the program "has stopped working".
Another thing, I even can not update my card! When I follow the steps, the final message is "The best driver software for your device is already installed" !
What should I do? Thank you!

Can we hack WPA2-PSK in the same way?
There is no WIFI with WEP here.

Shashank said...

Hey. . When I click update drivers, it say that your drivers are up to date, but still I can't click the play button in common view ! What should I do ?? Plz reply soon

theborisedu said...

@Pratik: I don't know that this method will work for higher encryption but I do know that they are much harder to hack.

@Shashank: if you are using windows 7 you should do this step: Browse, Let me pick, Have Disk, Browse in order to update the drivers
