The wireless industry continues to grow in leaps and bounds with more and more gadgets evolving to be wireless. Wireless access points, media centers, phones, and even security systems are commonplace in the average household. Unfortunately, the security that is implemented on this equipment is often lacking, opening the devices to severe security vulnerabilities. In practice, many companies and organizations still use and deploy vulnerable wireless gear, often in their default configurations. This is most often due to poor security awareness or a lack of understanding of the risks and ramifications.

Offensive Security Wireless Attacks Recommended Hardware
Unlike Pentesting with BackTrack, “Offensive Security Wi-Fu” does not have online labs. The student is required to purchase or previously own compatible hardware. In order to gain the most out of the course, it would be best to work on “dedicated hardware” which is completely under your control. This way, you can reboot and reset hardware with ease.
- A wireless access point (AP) with no hardened firmware.
- A wireless card (PCMCIA or USB) able to inject traffic.
- A BackTrack-compatible computer and wireless card.
- An additional computer able to connect to your wireless network.
Most Access Points should work well with the course, and not block or restrict our attacks. If you’re planning on buying dedicated hardware for this course, we can recommend the same hardware that was used to produce “Offensive Security Wi-Fu.”
Recommended Access Points
- D-Link DIR-601
- Netgear WNR1000
Recommended Wireless Cards
- Netgear WN111v2 USB
- ALFA Networks AWUS036H USB 500mW
