    Macbook air and WEP crack

    Firstly. I only want to check the security of MY OWN WiFi network.

    I own a macbook air. Kismac doesn't work with the macbook air chipset.

    I bought an Alfa usb WiFi dongle. Mac doesn't support it.

    I was thinking aircrack under windows (not so good)

    Or aircrack under ubuntu.

    Any ideas would be most welcome.

    Aircrack is on of the bests wireless cracking programs. It's very easy (and fast) to crack a wep wireless network especially if there is traffic on it. You can install aircrack using the command: "sudo apt-get install aircrack-ng". You can find instructions in these pages:
    http://aircrack-ng.org/doku.php?id=newbie_guide (the simple one)

    Remember: if you want to have a secure wireless network use WPA2.

    Try the Backtrack live cd from remote-exploit.org, it has all these utils and lots more and you wont need to do anything to your existing setup.
