Software to crack passwords on my router

robbie.linton
I have a Linksys WRT54G router and am wondering if there is any software that will crack or reset my password on my router while connected to my network.

    Why Me Worry?

    You'll lose your entire configuration, but it will reset the admin password to whatever the default is, most likely "password". Read the manual for exact details.

    If you're worried about a rogue network user I have never heard of any programs to crack the router password, but there are some to crack the wep wap password keys to gain access to your wireless network.

    But if you just need to reset the password because it was forgotten then the previous "stick a pin in the hole" post should work just fine.

    Are you asking about air cracks? You can crack the wep/64 or 128 with a linux tool called Auditor. It requires 2 laptops with wireless adaptors. This is the reason that they have wpa (much harder to crack)!
