It Certification

I just took my Network + exam and I failed for the reason of rushing, but its good that I failed cause it will strengthen my learning skills, the next time I take the exam I know I will pass so far I have my A + Certification, my next certification will be Security+, CCNA, CWNA, then Ethical Hacker and finally which I would love to dish out some money I will continue my career at a university for CCE aka Certified Computer Examiner this has been a big interest in my career. I recommended anyone to keep searching and experimenting as much as you can get your hands on Linux, Linux is an excellent tool for learning commands and so on with security, if you are afraid you will never know the unknowns that’s why anyone should swallow as much knowledge as you can which is what am learning form many forum sites especially from this site thank god and thank you all.

Re: It Certification

hackly66 Welcome to EH-Net! I think you are on the right track getting the CompTIA Certs before you go for Cisco certs. We are here for you so if you need anything just post.

Re: It Certification

Thank you all for welcoming me, I have been trying to do my very best in experimenting with my wifi card but the issue I am having is to upgrade the firmware being that I got the right Card to use with Backtrack v1 or v2 I need to find out step by step how to perform this, here is my gear
Senao NL-2511 CD PLUS EXT2(200) dual antenna for war driving with both antenna mini  and car mount antenna.

1.Live cd Backtrack v1 or v2
And have a dual partition of backtrack in an IBM ThinkPad R40 with XPPro

Firmware I think I have is 1.1.2
The recommend is 1.7.4 to do some packet injections on my own AP
If anyone can point me to the correct path I would appreciate all your help as
I get deeply into Linux and there commands just don’t want to risk losing this precious card :) lol

Re: Plus the satisfaction that I finally cracked a 48bit wep key !!!!

:)
Flashing the Firmware-Primary 1.1.1 Secondary 1.7.4

Boot into Live CD Backtrack V1
1.Slax login:root
  password:toor
  root@slax:startx

2.click on Konqueror-->Backtrack-->Wireless Tools-->Miscellaneous-->
  Switch to Host AP

3.at bash-3.00# hostap_diag wlan0
 
This should display firmware V1.1.0
                                        V1.4.9

Lets download the package

4.open up a command bash to download the proper firmware
  We will use a direct connection to the Internet

root@slax: ifconfig
root@slax: dhcpcd
root@slax:ping www.google.com

You should now be online open up FireFox-type in the address box link below-

http://www.netgate.com/support/prism_firmware/

Select 1.7.4.tar.gaz you can save to disk

Open->look at your slackware desktop-

You will see the package-left click and open-

Select at the top Action-->Extract-->this will extract to the root of you disk

file:///root/ click on OK

Open up another command bash and type-
root@slax:cd 1.7.4

You can type to view the contain folder by typing ls

root@slax:~/1.7.4#ls
af010104.hex ak010104.hex pk010101.hex pm010102.hex rf010704.hex ru010704.hex sf010704.hex

You can type prism2_srec to see the options you would like to choose this is a utility for flashing

Safe way first for a test-

root@slax:~/1.7.4#prism2_srec -v wlan0 pk010101.hex sf010704.hex

If everything looks good now you can add the final switch which is -f to flash your prism2 card

root@slax:~/1.7.4#prism2_srec -v -f wlan0 pk010101.hex sf010704.hex

After that you will see updating do not remove your card

Should state complete open up a command prompt

root@slax:hostap_diag wlan0

The results should be-

NICID: id=0x800c v1.0.0 (PRISM II (2.5) PCMCIA (SST parallel flash))
PRIID: id=0x0015 v1.1.1
STAID: id=0x001f v1.7.4 (station firmware)

And now you should have the firmware for v1.1.1 and 1.7.4 installed.

You can go to this link for more info if you don’t feel safe with my guide
But I was able to flash it cause forum’s had stated that it injects better…

You can also read this link and do the windows version I rather stick with linux
