Best setup for wifi hacking?

by /u/snowpy · 1 votes · 1 month ago

Hi, i would like to ask, i'm noob in this topic.

Can someone who knows recommend me a good hardware wifi setup for hacking neighbours wifi?

And also, is this opsec setup enough so they will not track my pc?

Mac address change > Tails

Thank you very much i appreciate recommendations

You need nothing more than a Kali image and a wifi dongle that can be switched to promiscuous mode.

You can use kismet to recon the clients and networks in your area and wifite should be able to get you into some of them if you are just getting started.

Let me know how it went

Don't connect your PC to the hardware and you're fine.

If you're totally new, you have a LOT to catch up on before you do anything legit.

While you're learning, look at the WiFi names of some that pop up on your device. Write them down. Set up a router with a captive-portal that automatically logs in and have it broadcast. Many devices will get a notification saying "Connect to WIFI_NAME?" if it's their WiFi name they'll probably click it thinking they had to reconnect, your portal should allow all connections without redirecting to a login site.

Monitor the traffic until you find something good.

Lots of automation methods that do just this, as you're learning those (very easy to use, read docs) manually setting up a phony access point is good practice.

You should look up aircrack-ng docs and other tutorials on the clearnet. After hacking someone's wifi you can track what they are doing and sell it. You can also make them give their password for an bank account or something like that using phishing. Look up tutorials on how to create a fake ap and start doing that. These are my suggestions, but you can try something completely different.
