            Airport Extreme
            Hello :)

            I've installed kismac to get a wi-fi connection on a neighbour, wich have a WEP key.

            I've got an Apple airport extreme card V.405.1 and I've noticed that Kismac don't give me the possibility to activate "Use as primacy device" (in the preferences pannels). It is because of my airport extreme card, passive mode ? I've tried with an active mode, but I read it was the passive one.

            Do I have to buy a USB key to crack WEP & WAP keys ?

            I can scan around me... but when I want to join a network (unsecure, with no key), nothing happens; and when I want to Deauthenticate, Kismac say that I have to go to my preferences to select a "primary device"...

            but I can't :(

            Thanks for your replies and sorry about my english, I'm just french ;)

            config : Mac OS X 4.8 PPC G4

            Ethernet & airport internet connection.

            Thanks a lot :)
