  1. WEP cracker? You can crack WEP in windows with aircrack-ng. I believe if your card is supported you can also capture packets with it too but i believe aircrack-ng discontinued windows support a few years back. Cain n Able also for Windows.

  2. Go do a attack on a WEP point from a NT machine and you’ll see why nobody bothers. It takes forever without injection. I forget why but you can’t put the chip into the mode it needs from NT without heavy reverse engineering.

    I could be wrong.

  3. WS is not for huge packet capturing safari. You certainly would not use notepad to code a project like firefox…

    They worked on this memory usage problem:

    Several memory leaks have been found and fixed.

    But at the time you are trying to display every packet on the screen and wanted to be able to scroll over them, you need to put those on memory… Using the ngrep method you put it on a file (and WS can do that too if you disable the display of packets in the gui)

  4. During capture, use tshark -w instead. Afterwards, to speed up handling, turn off any irrelevant protocols (however a more restrictive capture filter might do better).
