Wifi Hacking - Part 1

As i promised i will be writing  some articles on WiFi (Wireless Network) hacking in the next few days , In this very first article i will list out a few  tools and  things that you require for WiFi Hacking

Wireless adapter
The biggest requirement you'll need is a wireless adapter that's capable of packet injection, there are many cards capable of injecting packets, You can search  Google for the compatibility list of WiFi cards

I use Alfa AWUS036H which is a very popular card and it performs well with Backtrack

BackTrack Live Cd or Usb
Backtrack is a Linux distro with all  the essential tools required for penetration testing , I have already written  articles on how to make a backtrack live CD / USB ,If your new here i would recommend you to read the following articles to get a better understanding of what backtrack is and how you can use it
