How To Crack WEP - Part 2: Performing the Crack

In Part 2 of this series, Humphrey Cheung shows how to use the tools configured in Part 1 to capture data and perform a WEP key recovery.

How To Crack WEP - Part 1: Setup & Network Recon

It's common knowledge that WEP can be "easily" cracked. But did you ever wonder how easy it is? In Part 1 of a two-part series, Humphrey Cheung takes you step-by-step through putting together a WEP-cracking setup and using Kismet to find vulnerable wireless LANs.

Actiontec 54Mbps Wireless Network Camera

There are many consumer-priced networked cameras on the market today and even 802.11g wireless capability is pretty much a ho-hum feature. Humphrey Cheung took a look at Actiontec's offering, but found most of its differentiation to be in its negatives.

NETGEAR WPN824 RangeMax Wireless Router

NETGEAR's RangeMax wireless products hope to bring MIMO to the masses with promises of longer reach at higher speeds, but at prices perhaps more tempting to budget-conscious networkers. Tim Higgins takes an in-depth look at this new MIMO contender and finds a marriage of technologies that still have some issues to work out.

The Feds can own your WLAN too

WEP cracking usually conjures up images of geeks with evil intent. But Humphrey Cheung recently attended an FBI demonstration that showed at least some law enforcement types not only know about the latest generation of tools but also how to use 'em.

D-Link DGL-4300 Wireless 108G Gaming Router

You'll soon be seeing gigabit Ethernet and Quality of Service features appear in many consumer routers. However, D-Link has both today in a product that's pitched at gamers, but useful to a much broader audience. Tim Higgins takes an in-depth look at the DGL-4300.

Linksys WRT54GX Wireless-G / SRX Broadband Router

Last month Linksys decided to take the plunge into the current MIMO WLAN fad with its SRX product line based on Airgo Networks' True MIMO chipset. Tim Higgins digs deep into this technology's performance claims so that you can decide for yourself whether it's worth a very premium price.

How To: Adding Internal Wireless LAN to a Notebook

Today's notebooks all come with the ability to host an internal wireless LAN card. But cost-sensitive buyers may choose to forego that option and later regret it. But as long as you're willing to do some homework, our How To shows that it's not that hard to add a WLAN card yourself.

ZyXEL HomeSafe Parental Control Gateway

The ability of most routers to control the who, what and when of Internet access leaves much to be desired. Micah LaCombe found that ZyXEL's HomeSafe Parental Control Gateway is an exception to this status quo and doesn't command a premium price either.
