Guys you must know everything that's why i am explaining each and everything in this tutorials related to wireless networks or wifi hacking. Its a complete wireless network hacking tutorial with all hacking tools and how to use them. Using these you will came to know how to hack wifi or wireless networks and note guys this tutorial is 110% working like other one's.

Note: This article is only for Educational Purposes so that you can understand the loopholes in wireless networks and fix them. Any misuse can result in disastrous consequences like cyber crime.

Don't worry everything is ethical till you misuses it. So always try to be ethical as far as possible. Lets start from the first topic...

Scanning tools is needed to scan the wifi or wireless networks around you. First of all we need to scan all the wireless networks so that we can select the wireless network to hack. There are several wireless scanning tools but my favorite is NET STUMBLER. And for Mac operating systems is MacStumbler.

There are several Wireless scanning tools, a list of all wireless scanning tools is given below:

A. NetStumbler for Windows operating systems.

         NetStumbler (also known as Network Stumbler) is a tool for Windows that facilitates detection of Wireless LANs using the 802.11b, 802.11a and 802.11g WLAN standards. It runs on Microsoft Windows 98 and above. A trimmed-down version called MiniStumbler is available for Windows CE.

NetStumbler is commonly used for:

  • Wardriving
  • Verifying network configurations
  • Finding locations with poor coverage in one’s WLAN
  • Detecting causes of wireless interference
  • Detecting unauthorized (”rogue”) access points
  • Aiming directional antennas for long-haul WLAN links

B. MacStumbler for Mac operating systems.

                 MacStumbler is a small utility to emulate the functionality of projects like netstumbler, bsd-airtools, and kismet. It's meant purely for educational or auditing purposes, although many people enjoy using these types of programs to check out how many WiFi (wireless) networks are in their area, usually known as "war driving".

MacStumbler only works with AirPort wireless cards, it does not (yet) work with any PCMCIA or USB wireless devices.

 2.Kismet for Windows and Linux.
                      Kismet identifies networks by passively collecting packets and detecting standard named networks, detecting (and given time, decloaking) hidden networks, and infering the presence of nonbeaconing networks via data traffic. Kismet is an 802.11 layer2 wireless network detector, sniffer, and intrusion detection system. Kismet will work with any wireless card which supports raw monitoring (rfmon) mode, and (with appropriate hardware) can sniff 802.11b, 802.11a, 802.11g, and 802.11n traffic. Kismet also supports plugins which allow sniffing other media such as DECT.

3. PrismStumbler

              Prismstumbler is software which finds 802.11 (WLAN) networks. It comes with an easy to use GTK2 frontend and is small enough to fit on a small portable system. It is designed to be a flexible tool to find as much information about wireless LAN installations as possible. Because of its client-server architecture the scanner engine may be used for different frontends.

4. WaveStumbler

                 WaveStumbler is console based 802.11 network mapper for Linux. It reports the basic AP stuff like channel, WEP, ESSID, MAC etc. It has support for Hermes based cards (Compaq, Lucent/Agere, … ) It still in development but tends to be stable. It consist of a patch against the kernel driver, orinoco.c which makes it possible to send the scan command to the driver viathe /proc/hermes/ethX/cmds file. The answer is then sent back via a netlink socket. WaveStumbler listens to this socket and displays the output data on the console.

#. How to use NetStumbler for Scanning Wireless Networks? 

  1.  Download the NetStumbler and Install it.
  2. Run the NetStumbler. Then it will automatically starts scanning the wireless Networks around you.
  3. Once its completed, you will see the complete list of wireless networks around you as shown in the snapshot below:

List of Wireless Networks Scanned by NetStumbler

There you will see different columns such as MAC, SSID, SPEED, VENDOR, TYPE and much more...

4.  Now select anyone of the MAC address that you wish to hack and want to explore more about that. If you click on the MAC address of one of the discovered wireless networks under channels, you will see a graph that shows the wireless network’s signal strength. The more green and the less spaces are there,it indicates better is signal strength.

5.  As you can see NetStumbler provides a lot more than just the name (SSID) of the wireless network. It provides the MAC address, Channel number, encryption type, and a bunch more. All of these come in use when we decides that we wants to get in the secured network by cracking the encryption. 

There are two most common types of Encryption Methods used by Wireless Networks:

a. WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) – WEP isn’t considered safe anymore. Many flaws have been discovered that allow hackers to crack a WEP key easily. I will explain how to hack the WEP in next tutorial so guys keep reading..

b. WAP (Wireless Application Protocol) – WAP is the currently the most secure and best option to secure your wireless network. It’s not as easily cracked as WEP because the only way to retrieve a WAP key is
to use a brute-force or dictionary attack. If your key is secure enough, a dictionary attack won’t work and it could take decades to crack it if you brute-force it. This is why most hackers don’t even bother. But I will explain you smarter ways to hack WAP keys also rather than these noobish methods. I will explain this in my next consecutive  tutorials. So guys keep visiting.

Thats all about scanning the wireless networks, if you want that i should explain the other tools then please post in comments. I can explain them in future on demand.
Now how can protect our wireless network from scanned by NetStumber.

How to Protect yourself from NetStumbler?
  1.  Do not broadcast your SSID.
  2. Always try to use stronger passwords like atleast one digit, one special character, uppercase letters mixed with lowercase letters.
  3. But second point doesn't matter much so try to use better encryption method i.e. WAP to password protect your wireless Network.
