    Hack WEP wireless LANs in minutes

    Hackers no longer need to passively wait for legitimate packets on a wireless LAN because they can actively inject packets into a wireless LAN to ensure a speedy packet collection session. The end result is, any WEP based network with or without Dynamic WEP keys can now be cracked in minutes!

    So my Linksys WRT54G only uses wep encryption for security so does this mean the router is owned?

    yes mac filtering is enabled but do you know if there is firmware to support other encryption methods?

    I would like the hardware to do this.
