Risky WEP 64 bit

This is for testing purpose and it is about my home network. I highly recommend not to access networks you do are not allowed to. This could be illegal for some countries.

I have HP Pavilion dv6000 series (dv6699ea)
I use BackTrack distro live cd (
I configured my wireless adsl modem 64 bit key.

After booting linux,
dv6699ea has ipw3945 wireless. You have to start wireless for this version:
cd /usr/src/drivers/ipw3945-1.2.0/ && ./load
aircrack support certain wireless cards please check it

Dump from wireless interface
bt ~ # airodump-ng eth1 --write test1

After collecting enough
bt ~ # aircrack-ng test1.ivs

It takes about less than a second to find keys for 64 bit.
So never use 64bit WEP wireless adsl  modem.

I also tried
 atheros based Dlink D520 in Fedora 6
and U.S. Robotics USB Adapter USR805422 in Windows XP.  It worked.
