    Hi guys I use reaver to crack my router's WPA2 and WPA security, It's slow I know but it actually helps if you are close to the AP. Do you guys know any other way to crack WPA?, wpscrack does the same exact thing but in a different layout visually. A dictionary attack is pretty useless since I don't use it anymore. time. So any thoughts?
    I just want to know if there is a faster way than reaver I have heard of a commercial version of it but I guess is not that fast to be such a big deal, I bet it takes at least 5-8 hours like the free version. Thanks

    There are several ways to break or find a key to encrypt using WPA.

    - Reaver ( or Reaver PRO ) if WPS is enabled ... (knowing that some routers do not support the attack)
    - A dictionary with the chance to have the key to the interior of the latter
    - A rogue AP well done, but it requires to be close to the target

    There is no exact science for crack WPA but different techniques and ingenuity;)

    Reaver can crack WPA/WPA2 in way less than 5-8 hours. At least it does for me.
