    To get better responses, it will be required to give more info on your setup / wireless cards...


    From a quick test with my Alfa, it seems to work OK..

    same issue here, I have replicated the issue with the following setups

    Alfa AWUS036H
    AtherosAR9287
    kali amd64
    kali i386


    I Have tried on a VM, full install, and running from the live cd,both architectures.
    I dont think this is an issue with drivers as everything else related to these card is fine. ie. airodump-ng lists all networks normally, however does nothing to identify WPS.

    Im unsure how TAPE was able to do it with one of the same cards im testing with (tested on desktop vm and laptop full install (Alfa)). He must have the magic setup

    I'm having the same issues. I'm using an Alfa AWUS036H on Kali GNOME 32-bit VM. The aircrack-ng suite works - injection, WEP cracking, capturing WPA handshakes, those are all good.

    reaver and wash on the other hand, do not work. It just sits there and no APs are being printed. If I boot into Backtrack 5R3, it works fine. What other information can I provide to help debug this?

    apt-get isntall libsqlite3-dev should fix the wash problem (it worked for me)

    I get the same problem with wash (headers, but no data output), but reaver works fine for me. I can get the bssid info from airodump-ng ... but without wash, I don't know if it's running WPS.

    Network controller: Intel Corporation Ultimate N WiFi Link 5300
    Subsystem: Intel Corporation Device 1121
    Kernel driver in use: iwlwifi

    I also have the same problem no matter what card I use. I have 3 different
    Alfas that all worked fine in BT5. I also installed sqllite as mentioned above but it didn't make a difference.

    Got it working.. (Solution ?)

    I found a fix. Make a directory in /etc called reaver so you "/etc/reaver/"
    The make file from the source for sqlite is trying to call that directory.. blah blah blah.. Anyway just make that directory and then run wash and it should work. Let me know!

    Got it working by making a a directory in /etc/ "mkdir /etc/reaver" then run wash. Worked like a charm for me.

    Hi guys i think i found the solution, that may help you.
    First of all you need to install libpcap-dev and libsqlite3-dev packages from repository.

    1. ~# apt-get install libpcap-dev
    2. ~# apt-get isntall libsqlite3-dev

    Then, you should download the reaver itself. You can do that from official site.
    3. ~# wget http://reaver-wps.googlecode.com/fil...ver-1.4.tar.gz
    Unpack tar :
    4. ~# tar -xvzf reaver-1.4.tar.gz

    Go to unpacked dir
    5. ~# cd reaver-1.4/src/
    6. ~# ./configure
    7. ~# make
    8. ~# sudo make install

    Then remove an existing wash

    8. ~# sudo rm /usr/bin/wash

    copy wash from src direcory to /usr/bin/

    9. ~# cp wash /usr/bin/wash

    Now try wash

    10. ~# wash -i mon0
    and it should work. =)

    That's all. I my case I fix the problem now it works properly. I hope it helps you too.

    I have to come back on my initial post
    Although it wasnt freezing, after running for a while I too noticed that no networks were showing up when I know for fact they are there..

    So I stand corrected !

    Thanks! I created the /etc/reaver directory, and that worked for me. (I'm not sure I understand WHY that worked, but it worked.)

    the combination of the following worked for me

    1. ~# apt-get install libpcap-dev
    2. ~# apt-get isntall libsqlite3-dev

    and also making the /etc/reaver reaver folder and setting very loose permissions to it.


    Now im back up and running with reaver/wash/wifite. Albeit it seems that wash is very slow, you may need to let it run for a minute or so and you will start to see networks.

    Same problem here: kali-linux amd64 1.0 seems to have a bug with wash, no networks are shown. If I do the same with back track 5r3, everyhing works fine !!!
    apt-get isntall libsqlite3-dev did NOT solve the problem for me

    Hello, I had the same problem as everyone else. Wash would not detect any networks. I made the /etc/reaver directory and it still didn't work. After that all I did was disconnect from any network I was connected to and ran wash -i mon0 and BAM! It picked up like 8 networks.

    did you make sure to connect from all networks before running wash? That worked for me for some reason. Just make sure you're not connected to any networks and then run wash. let me know if it worked.

    Read the thread from beginning to end several times, made the /etc/reaver folder... Didn't work, then I followed the instructions of

    1. ~# apt-get install libpcap-dev
    2. ~# apt-get isntall libsqlite3-dev

    during the ./configure step of the instructions, I got "checking for pcap_open_live in -lpcap... no" and finally "error: pcap library not found!"

    Needless to say, wash has not worked. I am running the XFCE interface, not sure if that matters though.

    Same problem here:

    Wash not detecting any WPS, and mine as WPS for testing.

    Card: Alfa AWUS036H
    VMware image, didnt try using HDD install or ISO Boot.
    Kali apt-get updated and all latest installed.

    Anyone have solved this?

    Thanks

    Hey there... I don't know if this is the same problem, but I was having an intermittent issue where it would freeze like that in wash.

    VMware - Alfa - Kali
    and also on separate HW laptop and Alfa.

    Did you make sure to kill the processes that airmon-ng says will interfere before turning on mon0?
    I found out that if I did this, I did not have any problems anymore with wash or airodump-ng not finding APs

    You can see how I did it in my vid:

    I had the same issue with Wash as everyone else here. So I followed the recommended advice "mkdir /etc/reaver". Wash is working now. Thanks all.

    Try using the -C flag. It ignores fcs(frame checksum errors. frames of corrupted data) while executing the command. Should work.

    Just use the following command.

    wash -i mon0 -C

    Problem solved.

    Just thought i'd chime in in case someone stumbles across this post. The reason it isnt working is because a directory doesnt exist where wash is attempting to write the db file. The fix is simply a folder creation.

    mkdir /etc/reaver

    Fixed.

    This worked for me, after restart. Thanks a lot h1d3n.
    For some reason newly installed Reaver set its save directory to /usr/local/etc/reaver.

    for sure you must disconnect from the Internet, as you have to do with airodump-ng if you want to be able to scan all the channels and not just the one you are connected in.

    Our teams solution to all these problems with kali-linux 1.06 is to simply run an updated version of 1.05. If your main interests are aircrack-ng, reaver, mdk3 phishing etc we have six computers all running fine. A simple solution is to just make a persistent usb with 1.05 and update it. We suggest you not upgrade. We are waiting for 1.07.
