Do you want to test the security of your network? Usually, to accomplish this task, you need a desktop operating system such as Windows, Linux, installed on your computer with a specific wireless network card. However, nowadays you can also use some Android devices to scan and hack wireless networks. These tools are available for free, as long as your device is compatible. Hacking into routers without permission is illegal. These steps are provided to test the security of your own network.

Steps

Method 1 of 2: Hack a WEP router

Hack Wi Fi Using Android Step 8

Step 1. Root a compatible device

Not all Android phones or tablets will be able to hack a WPS PIN. The device must have a Broadcom bcm4329 or bcm4330 wireless chipset and must be rooted. The Cyanogen ROM will offer a better chance of success. Some of the supported devices are:

  • the Nexus 7
  • the Galaxy S1 / S2 / S3 / S4 / S5
  • the Galaxy Y
  • the Nexus One
  • the Desire HD
  • the Micromax A67

Step 2. Download and install bcmon

This tool activates Monitor mode on your Broadcom chipset, which is essential for PIN hacking. The bcmon APK file is available for free on the bcmon page on the Google Code website.

  • To install an APK file, you need to allow installation from unknown sources in your menu Security. See step 2 of this article for more information.

Step 3. Run bcmon

After installing the APK file, run the application. When prompted, install the firewall and tools. Tap the option Activate Monitor Mode. If the app crashes, open it and try again. If this fails for a third time, your device is probably not supported.

Your device must be rooted in order to run bcmon

Step 6. Note the MAC address that appears

This is the MAC address for the router. Make sure you have the correct address, if there are multiple routers listed. Write down this MAC address.

Also note the channel broadcast by the access point

Step 7. Start the channel analysis

You will need to collect the information from the access point for several hours before you can hack the password. Type airodump-ng -c channel # --bssid the MAC address -w output ath0 and press Enter. Airodump will begin the scan. You can leave the device for a while while it analyzes the information. Make sure to charge it, if the battery is low.

  • Replace channel # with the number of the channel from which the router is transmitting (example 6).
  • Replace the MAC address with the MAC address of the router (example: 00: 0a: 95: 9d: 68: 16)
  • Continue scanning until you reach at least 20,000 to 30,000 packets.

Step 9. Write down the hexadecimal password when you are finished

After the hacking process (which can take several hours), the message Key found! will appear, followed by the key in hexadecimal form. Make sure the "Probability" is 100% otherwise the key will not work.

When entering the key, enter it without the ":". For example if the key is 12: 34: 56: 78: 90, you must enter 1234567890
