I've seen a lot of tutorials on how to crack a WPA/WPA2 Network using Reaver or Aircrack-Ng on Kali Linux. However, neither of these tools work for me.
With Reaver, after it switches to the correct channel (after a decent amount of time switching between channels), it just freezes and doesn't output anything, even with
-vv as an option. With the Aircrack-Ng method, I never see a WPA handshake after sending a
If this isn't the right place to ask about this, where should I ask for help on this? If this is the right place, what can I do about this?
Here is a picture from my iPhone that shows what pops up in my virtual console 1 after booting up. Everything above the part for entering the login shows up during boot, everything after that shows up after boot.
I don't know if this has anything to do with it, but it may. Regardless, does this pose any problem for my Kali Linux? I am running Kali Linux 2.0 on an ext4 partition.
If the installation process of Kali Linux makes a difference, it is contained in my post here: Warning while Booting into Ubuntu. This post of mine contains the warnings I get while booting into Ubuntu, which are similar to that of booting into Kali Linux.
So I guess I have two questions:
- Where can I get help using tools like Reaver or Aircrack-ng?
- Are the warnings in the image anything I need to worry about?
Here is information requested about the errors:
For the ext4 one, my installation completed successfully. It ended saying that I could reboot into Kali now. However, if you look in the link I provided, it shows about my installation procedure, and there were some parts that I believe were not that significant that I could not see any options for, as part of the installer was cut off on my display, but I'm not sure if that was the problem.
My Wifi connection works fine, as I am posting from Kali Linux. However, I can just try
sudo apt-get <app> if I must. I don't know what the name is for the iwlwifi firmware.
I just tried running the command regarding the
openvas-scanner, and then with the -l option, which it said to show extra information, and this is the output:

If it makes a difference, my Kali Linux is on a logical ext4 partition. I also installed Kali grub the second time going through, which is what is run now instead of my Ubuntu grub.
