In this article, we will be discussing various resources that can assist individuals in learning about WiFi hacking techniques. It is important to note that attempting to access someone else's WiFi network without their permission is illegal in most countries and can result in severe penalties. This information is being shared for educational purposes only. We strongly discourage any illegal or unethical use of this information.


Device

First you need a laptop or any device in which you can install Kali Linux. In my case, I am using a Laptop and I have installed Kali Linux on VMware

WiFi Adapter

This step is more important because most of the people will buy wrong adapter which doesn't support monitor mode or its only for 2ghz. So read carefully before buying any WiFi adapter:-

I am using TP Link ac 600 nano which supports monitor mode and 2ghz/5ghz. For this adapter drivers installation is also easy

sudo apt install realtek-rtl88xxau-dkms
How to Check If Adapter supports Monitor mode?

After installing Drivers try these commands

If your wlan0 "Mode:Managed" is changed to "Mode:Monitor", it means it supports monitor mode.

Packet Injection:

Make sure your WiFi adapter is in "Managed" Mode before testing for packet injection

Some Important terms:-

  • WEP: (Wired Equivalent Privacy) is an older and less secure protocol

  • WPA or WPA2: WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) and WPA2 are newer and more secure versions. WPA2 is the most widely used protocol and is considered the most secure option currently available.
