Re: wireless pen test on windows

For any Wireless penetration testing task my choice has always been Linux OS because many powerful Tools esp. Aircrack, Kismet run on Linux. Linux also has a very good support(drivers) for vast number of wireless cards.

Windows is not piece of cake but some notable wireless networks penetration tools that I know are:

Network Stumbler a.k.a NetStumbler – This Windows based tool easily finds wireless signals being broadcast within range
inSSIDer is an free Wi-Fi network scanner for Windows Vista and Windows XP.
Wireshark

Re: wireless pen test on windows

I have never used Aircrack on Windows, so I have no idea about the performance, compatibility or support for various cards. Would like to hear from some one who has used aircrack on Windows  :)

Re: wireless pen test on windows

I'd recommend that you take a look at the BackTrack forum.  It's a very active community and some there have had similar problems.

Probably driver issues.  Have you tried the different graphics modes, from the boot menu, if booting the liveCD?
