would like to know how to decode 802.11 packet from Alfa Network Atheros AR9271 adapter, IEEE 802.11b/g/n. Long Range USB adapter, after firing the command "sudo airmon-ng start wlan0" and "sudo airmon-ng check klll" to go into monitor mode. I have 802.11 packets alone and want EAPOL to be able to use aircrack. I know I need to add in Preferences > IEEE 802.11 > Decryption, but I don't know what to add there, what items. Someone will guide me ?

Direct by example from where I can organize the necessary items

These are 802.11 security protocols - your question is not clear.

Bob Jones gravatar imageBob Jones ( 2023-05-06 13:21:40 +0000 )edit here you need put wep, wpa-pwd, wpa-psk to decrypt 802.11, in example on this website, decryption keys. But I don't know where to find those.

" When you click the + button to add a new key, there are three key types you can choose from: wep, wpa-pwd, and wpa-psk "

Where I can find those keys?

If these keys were easy to find, then it wouldn't be secure. The keys are used as part of networks that you or other clients might connect to. You have to put yourself in a position to collect the keys - either use tools that export keying materials (e.g. wpa_supplicant on linux), you know the key (e.g. WPA2-Personal for a network you connect to), or you crack the password some how.

I use Long Range adapter usb , Atheros AR9271 IEEE 802.11, i putted wpa-pwd (Password:Myssid) from router, FunBox Orange, but still i have only 802.11 traffic, i wanna Eapol. Can you tell me how to correctly decode that traffic, with tool, how to configure. Really i cant find those keys on my router in browser.
