I have cracked a lot of wep and I cant say I have been fortunate enough to crack 128 bit in less than a minute with no clients, but often around 8 minutes is normal, at least for me. I would also add that if the normal home owner used all the security normally available with most home routers, it can be reasonably secure. What I mean by secure is secure from the neighborhood script kiddie, which is usually the one that is the culprit. Along with 128 wep, mac filtering, no DHCP, etc... usually makes it to much of a pain for the average teenage hacker. Then on top of all that, the router signal needs to be strong enough for you to be able to inject packets from a distance, say at least from the street. Most people are going to get a little weird if you try and hack them from their front porch, lol. Yes, wep alone is weak, but to truly cut your teeth as a hacker, you should try and hack your way through all the above mentioned security. Not that its a big deal to do, but it often requires much more time.
