I am a newbie, so pls be gentle ... :-) How easy is it to defeat WEP? From reading the the news traffic in this group it seemed that many people are having trouble with WPA (PSK?) so I have not gone with it, yet. Currently I am only enabling WEP (10-digit hex network connection) and SSID hidden/not broadcast. Is there a tool that people use to sniff un-encrypted wifi signal and extract this network login key or something like that? I think it would help other newbie too if someone can give info on how these things are hacked. Thanks.
