The following is a quick-hit list of commands for attacking a WEP wireless network. It assumes you are using a 2016 variant of Kali linux with the aircrack-ng suite installed and a wireless network card that can be placed into monitor mode (which should be about 100% of them). It also assumes that there is a WEP network with an associated client that is transmitting, and that you are running as a user with sufficient permissions to execute each of these commands.
For the sake of this tutorial the AP will be assumed to have a MAC address of “DE:AD:DE:AD:DE:AD” and the client will be assumed to have a MAC address of “BE:AD:ED:BE:AD:ED”. The wireless network card we will use will be assumed to be “wlan0”.
