DirectX 10 on Windows XP (NEW UPDATE!)

17 05 2008

As you all know Microsoft has only released DirectX 10 for Vista. That was a big dissapointment for the Windows XP users. Also, DirectX 10 for Vista cannot be downloaded from anywhere except Windows Vista Update. So…..after a while, some hackers and programmers managed to get DirectX 10 working on Windows XP. Evethough they are not as good as the original ones, they do a great job in optimizing your Graphics and Rendering performance.

Cracking WEP with AirPcap and Cain and Abel

16 03 2008

This video tutorial demonstrates how to crack WEP in Windows using AirPcap and Cain and Abel.

Preparation

You’ll need:

Note: It is possible to get this working by using the cheaper “Classic” AirPcap, in conjunction with the old 2.0 Beta Tx Drivers for AirPcap, to enable packet injection capability, but this is entirely unsupported, and is not guaranteed to work. YMMV.

Notes

  • To begin ARP injections, AirPcap must capture at least 1 ARP request from a system on the target AP. You can usually force this by sending a Deauth to a connected client.
  • Make sure you have over 250,000 IVs before attempting to crack the WEP key.
  • In my tests, the old AirPcap (silver-grey) appears to perform significantly faster than the new AirPcap (dark-grey). I think it’s about 10x faster.
